This morning these were found on my a door step with a gorgeous card!
I had no expectations for my Birthday and asked not to get presents. I have what I need. Each year we ask each other what kind of cake we would like for our birthday. It can range from a homemade regular or ice cream cake to something purchased depending on what we have a hankering for! I usually request strawberry shortcake, my favourite! Ages ago I requested one cinnamon bun...because it was easy and I love them, plus I didn't want a whole cake hanging around!
|Cupcake has been tie dying like crazy lately and I love the sweaters and shirts she's created!|
I haven't been the best of friends the last few years because I just can't do what I used to with my bad hip. I have tried to wean off celebrations..meeting on occasion when I have a good day with a friend or two. It's always a lovely visit. However I have bowed out of a several celebrations because it just takes too much energy for me.
|Cupcake just painted these beige sandals with acrylic and flexible varnish. They were an end of the season find two years ago!|

|Cupcake is tapping into her creative side full force lately!!|
Wednesday felt like my actual birthday when Beardo Changed my bed, and washed all my blankets! He was painting and doing odd jobs around the house. Yet all day was filled with surprises. He brought home a large coffee and doughnuts. Then he brought me gorgeous boquet of my favorite flowers pink peonies.
Because Cupcake had to work on her normal day off he brought home Sushi for us to enjoy at dinner!! Later in the evening he brought me home a special chai tea! Sincerely I have the most amazing son in law and daughter a woman could dream of! Sometimes I have to pinch myself because I feel like I am dreaming!
|One of the t-shirts Cupcake did for Beardo she even did a dress shirt which everyone is admiring!|
Last week Cupcake bought and put together a much needed new computer chair for me! It's so wonderfully comfortable and my hip LOVES it! Today she served me, gave me a pedicure and the kids barbequed me a wonderful dinner!!
All these many loving gestures truly make me feel loved! Being treated with love and respect is the most precious gift you can receive when you don't have a whole lot of yourself to give back!
I am truly blessed by the love of friends and family! I feel abundantly grateful and undeserving! A million thank yous Cupcake and Beardo you make everyday special for me!!
To everyone else who wished me a Happy Birthday and those who sent cards...thank you from the bottom of my heart...I am truly a lucky woman!
Be honest, what do you prefer many small gestures of love, or one large grandiose gesture to feel loved?
