Day 40 Feb 8, 2010

I felt Loved today. I had many phone calls, cards, and visits from friends and family. Even some facebook greetings and emails. I received thoughtful gifts from my children and grandchildren. I spent most of the day making valentines with my 17 year old granddaughter. It was a very happy birthday. I also put flowers on my parents graves. I am grateful to them for the gift of life, and so much more. When my mother was living, I gave her flowers on my birthday since I was 16 yrs old. So it has been 50 years that I have had that happy tradition.


  1. Happy Birthday! I love the idea of giving parents flowers on your birthday. What a wonderful idea!! I may borrow that :O) Glad you had a special day!

  2. Thank you Latifa...and yes, may borrow the idea. For 50 years, it has served me well, so well that I do not want to give it up, and so 17 yrs after my father's death, and 2 years after my mother's, my birthday finds me at the cemetery... eith flowers in hand, and that is how it ought to be.
