Greetings from Ohio! I mentioned last week about my birthday last year and I had a great celebration. However, at the time I had no idea that a few weeks later, the kids and my husband would hold a surprise party for me. I’m usually “in the know”, but I completely missed this one. When I returned home from a birthday manicure, (a gift from my youngest), I stepped into a house filled with people who shouted, “Surprise!” Or was it Happy Birthday? I don’t remember what they said to tell you the truth, because I was confused and shocked. Have you ever looked at people in a certain setting and wondered why they were there? I spotted the two out-of-town daughters… they were definitely not supposed to be here. And there were friends, neighbors, all of the kids and grandkids, and my dear sweet husband. Henry absolutely loved the chatter and commotion. Having everyone come together just for me was a true joy and a gift I will always remember. It really was the perfect birthday gift.
