Better Than The Alternative
Today I’m another year older…and as my mother always reminds me, “It’s better than the alternative…”
I would agree!
Last weekend I had some of my very best friends in town and they surprised me with a little celebration. We had dinner on Saturday night and all shared an impromptu chocolate sack with a candle on top. Delicious!
My precious friend, Mary Charles, (much to my objection) asked that everyone participate in their family tradition and go around the table and share what the birthday girl means to them. I wanted to crawl under the table…I’m the one who’s suppose to honor my friends…not the other way around!! But I bit my lip and listened to my precious friends words. As uncomfortable as it was, it was the most precious gift anyone could have ever given me. It just drove home what I already know…my greatest blessings in life are my friends.
So today…I’m embracing that I’m blessed with another year…Happy Birthday to me!
Do you have birthday traditions? What’s your favorite way to honor your friends? If you had one wish for your birthday, what would it be?
Tomorrow I’ll have my regular “That’s A Wrap” post!
