OT my birthday surprise!

luvstocraftMarch 3, 2011

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.

Luvs, this is the most wonderful news I've heard from you in a long time. I so hope that you will have many many wonderful years ahead with DH still remembering his "honey bunny's birthday!" How Sweet!!!

Sounds like you had a beautiful day and I know you will enjoy all the Michael's gift cards you received. Nice you was able to spend the day with some very special ones in your life.

Love, Punk

Thank you all for the birthday wishes--although I wasn't seeking those--I just wanted to share my little miracle of having DH not only remember my birthday but go buy some flowers and a card.

Other than his normal daily routine now, those kinds of extras just seldom happen anymore so it was a very unexpected special surprise.

I was very surprised and considered it a little gift from God that DH was able to get me one more birthday surprise. ;o) Luvs

So glad you had such a special birthday this year & that your honey remembered you! That was best gift. My dad wanted to buy mom a card for her birthday this Jan. I told him I would get it, he is housebound, he struggled to sign it "I Love You Honey" went from far left to far right of card. Mom cried when she opened it! These things are so important especially when you have been together for a long time. (70 yrs May 12 for my folks) Hope the meds are very helpful & you will get many more treasured days with your honey! Happy Birthday! Jan

Kathleen, I'm so glad to see you got on finally. I read your email and was going to contact GW to figure out what was preventing you from signing on.

Jan, I can relate to how your Mom must have felt just knowing the effort your Dad put into writing those special words to her. Sometimes it's the small things we've always taken so for granted that really touch us the most.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes and for sharing a very special moment of my life.
