Birthdays have never really been the same since losing mum and dad, even more so since the girls moved away. It’s a time of year I normally dread, preferring to take myself away from it all; why celebrate?
This year however was entirely different. Yes, I wasn’t looking forward to my Birthday for the usual old reasons even though it was [supposedly] a special one – the big 4-0!
In the end, having my girls with me for the weekend (my weekend with them fell right this year) and having such a wonderful person [Shelli] really go that extra mile to make sure I had a smile on my face and to spoil me rotten, well, it made this a very special Birthday weekend.
Thank you everyone who sent me a card/Birthday wish, especially my girls, Shelli, Asri, Eleni, Val and Tony for making this a weekend to remember, instead of one to forget!
Each year there is now
A reason to celebrate.
