For my 50th birthday I decided to have a get together at my house to celebrate.  I invited all my closest and dearest girlfriends.  When my girlfriends asked if they could help I told them after all these years I knew what to do and was capable of coordinating it all.  Some girlfriends I have know for many years from past jobs, some are my neighbors, some are from my present job, and others I know from the community and are parents of my sons’ friends.

I then decided to give myself a present.  I went out and bought an 8” x 8” photo album.  I dedicated one girlfriend to each page by placing a 3” x 4” picture of each girlfriend somewhere towards the top of the page.  Then I asked them to write something about me.  They could write as much as they liked.  I then took the page and filled in any remaining blank areas with stickers of beautiful flowers, butterflies, adorable upbeat sayings and puppies.

It has taken me several months to complete this present because each girlfriend has to write in her own comfort.  Some took their page home, some did it here at my house, some did it at work.

The album is almost complete and I love to look at each and every page and see what each girlfriend wrote to me.  It’s very uplifting and something to treasure for years to come.  It’s really very unique and special.
