Birthdays

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.

And from deep down in the southern most part of Georgia, I sing Happy Birthday to you a day late, but it takes a long time for it to travel all the way up there.

I just stumbled on your blog through the Ravelry comment train and see it was your birthday - happy birthday! :) I'm a knitting teacher too!
