About 3 weeks ago... it was my birthday.
(GASP)!!! ( I have friends who are reading this now and are kicking themselves because they feel bad for not remembering).
And friends.... let me tell you....
(Okay.... some people remembered... but a very precious few.)
Facebook didn't remember.
I don't know how that happens.
But facebook didn't remember either.
I think I even forgot.
Friends... What I want you to know is... the stars were somehow aligned... and ....
It's not your fault.
Maybe I needed a good dose of humble pie.
Maybe it means that because it was somewhat "forgotten" that my body hasn't actually aged a year.
Maybe it means...
nothing at all.
Bottom line... my birthday was a few days after my Dad got out of the hospital after having a heart attack.
And, the "small sting" I would have normally felt by a somewhat "forgotten day" didn't sting at all.
Well.... maybe a black fly midgy sting. Yeah... one of those. Our family had a more grand celebration going on in our hearts. My Dad was still here. So, a few precious family members gathered around down at the lake at my parents' house. We had pizza on the party boat. We had piggy-back races. We had joy. It was actually... the perfect day... mostly forgotten and all.
