It’s my mom’s birthday today! Whoop! She spent the day doing what most of us adults do, which is not a lot. She spent the day at home; went to a buffet and ate too much; then played cribbage with my sister and brother-in-law. It’s a good thing we celebrated at my house.
Actually we celebrated my birthday a bit early at our house. A friend came over and brought these yummy cupcakes and a present. We ate pizza and watched The Jungle Cruise before she realized we aren’t that exciting at our house either and left.
Too bad birthdays aren’t the thrilling adventure they are were when we were younger. But it’s ok. That’s just the way of it. I’m so thankful for my mom today. Her love and support mean everything. And I’m glad I got to see her last weekend and give her a gift that she seemed to legitimately like. Yay! I’m also thankful to have celebrated my birthday early with a good friend who is one of the most generous and giving people I know.
