cakeI’m not a big birthday person, especially when it comes to  my own birthday.  I don’t like being the center of attention and would be just as happy to not do anything on my birthday.  But my sweet dad, at almost 84, was determined to celebrate my birthday this year.  So on a day of heavy rain, we got the family together for chicken strips, mac and cheese, and salad.  It was a pretty quiet, low-key afternoon, but I realize how blessed I am to have people who want to celebrate me, and grandchildren who can’t wait to sing Happy Birthday to me.  Of course April was missing,  but she sent flowers and called.  Today is her birthday, so I’m missing her even more today.  Happy Birthday, April!
