Happy Birthday to Me!

Thanks, everyone, for the many birthday wishes! You are my peeps who have given me strength for the past couple of years and who have made me smile many times, including today. I have a ... shall we say ... "further enhanced" appreciation for birthdays. I've always loved my birthday day and have never had a problem with the fact that it means getting older but birthdays seem especially wonderful now. So many others have said it better but the quote that most stands out in my mind about birthdays is, "they're better than the alternative". I second that!

Kevin is away until tomorrow and, as it turns out, I have a friend who shares the same birthday and whose husband is also away, so we met for a bite to eat after work and then went to an early movie. Lovely. And I've had lots of phone calls, emails, facebook messages, things stuffed in my mailbox, and cake with my colleagues at work. A really lovely day!

Laurie commented that there aren't very many photos of me on my blog anymore so, Laurie, this one is for you! Happy belated birthday to you, Laurie!

Thanks again.
