Happy Birthday to Me!

It’s my birthday on Friday. The celebration started tonight when my kids couldn’t wait to give me their gifts. As thrilled as I was to receive them, I really wanted to save them for Friday so that the celebration would not fade by the time Friday came around. But they were so eager that I had to open their gifts.

My daughter got me a necklace. It was a heart with Daughter written on one half and Mother written on the other half – the kind we both wear. It was sweet and it was her way of keeping us eternally connected. My son got me a CD with Grammy award winning songs. He knows how much I love music. I think he was trying to let me know that it was time to upgrade the music in my CD player. I wore the necklace and we played the CD and danced around in my bedroom for a while. They showed me moves I didn’t even know were possible. What can I say…my kids have groove!

It was all great – but the greatest part of the evening was the card they made for me. Here’s what it said…

“Mom you rock and you’re the best mom we ever had.
On your 30th birthday we’d like you to know that you’re the Best in the world.
Better than the rest.
With age comes wizdom and since you’re a year older you should be very wize.

We love you Mom,

Louis and Ferne”

What else could a mother ask for on her birthday? Jewelry, music, love and everlasting youth! Happy Birthday to me!

P.S. For those of you who are wondering…I’m not really 30 – they just thought it was time for me to finally graduate from my 29th year! I have them trained well!)
