I love birthdays!! And today it's mine! I don't mind that I'm now officially closer to 60 than to 50, I don't mind that I had to go back to school after a lovely spring break, I don't mind that it was threatening rain most of the day, I don't mind that I had to cook dinner, and I even don't mind that I really didn't like the cake my husband purchased at the grocery store yesterday. I had a lovely day. My husband went shopping at my favorite gift store in town, and purchased a lusted-after Vera Bradley bag for me all without any hinting on my part. My sons ordered me my most-wanted item off my wish list (even if it's backordered). A colleague brought me nearly to tears with her unexpected gifts of a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee and Vera Bradley lanyard but especially her sweet words. My homeroom sang Happy Birthday to me. I am grateful for my family and friends, for my often-complained about job, and especially for another birthday.
