OT my birthday surprise!
Today was my birthday and I had a really nice day. A long time friend did a salad for lunch and made cupcakes for me. Neighbor gal brought me a plant and Michael's gift card. DIL and little DGD took me for a pedicure, then we picked up food to bring home. DS joined us with a waaay too yummy cake and another Michael's gift card, several cards and emails too--all made me feel very special.
BUT the most amazing thing of all was that my sweet DH who is having so many memory problems right now actually went to the store and got me roses and a card! I was totally blown away that he was able to remember to do that! When I kissed him and told him how impressed I was with his gift, he said "I couldn't forget my "honey bunny's birthday!"
God is so good and knows the troubles and fears we face. He must have known I needed this bit of hope--and I'm praying so hard that the medication will give us more time together. We celebrated 45 years of marriage in December and I want to keep him lots lots longer.
Thanks for letting me share.
