Post Birthday Musings
All I wanted was a relaxed birthday weekend; a walk in the park; a trip to the salon to get my nails done; a massage maybe and I’m good. I found out it's not cool having my birthday on a Sunday. I'm sure the salons are busier than usual. I chose to just stay at home and get all the pampering another time. But I was pleasantly surprised by Google with a birthday greeting. I always hover over the Google icon to find out what’s special or memorable about the day or who’s celebrating a birthday and I saw bakeshop stuff galore and that it was for me. Awesome! Even K asked how I got a greeting from Google ha ha ha I get the same yearly greetings from Ticketmaster and 94.7 The Wave.
No amount of pleading from my family to go out and eat can weaken my resolve to just stay at home so they just got everything to go and I got to eat my favorite salad at home. Little gifts with sweet thoughts are almost a given on my birthday. I got a nice homemade cake with the infamous Cheshire cat from Secret Garden; colognes; a Paris inspired cell phone case; flip flops; a pair of Chucks; gift card; a little Canon cam, a Anthurium planter and an early cake gift from Ms K- a Japanese Tofu Cheesecake with Blueberry Gelée.
I guess seeing on TV the devastation Oklahoma went through because of the tornado made me realize more that we have so much to be thankful for and appreciate. We should just count our blessings and pray for the less fortunate ones if we can't help them in any other way. We are blessed and I thank God for another year of existence.
