Dear Diary:

Yesterday was my birthday and I couldn’t have felt more loved. I got up and walked downstairs to love notes, finger paintings, cards and flowers my stepdaughter and granddaughter put all over the house while I slept. My phone rang and there was my mother singing happy birthday and laughing. I opened my Fab40 account and my Facebook account and was overwhelmed with birthday wishes. I went to my mailbox and there were cards from wonderful women who I connect with on this site but have never actually met in person. There was handmade jewelry sent to me that will be worn and cherished. I went downtown to my kitchen and there was a delicious cheesecake made by the professional baker I work with. In the evening the house smelled like a spanish restaurant as my husband made a delicious paella. I drank champagne, ate cheesecake and flopped into bed, happy, content and feeling more love than I ever have in my entire life. I’m so grateful that the word alone seems paultry to the emotions coursing through my soul right now.

I will never forget this day. I will never forget this feeling. I will forever be grateful for the incredible gifts that God has decided to bestow. And, I will never take any of it for granted.

Thank you, Lord. Thank you all.
