A Family Birthday — with Friends, too

Mom at her 97th Birthday Dinner

Good Morning, God!

Aaaah! A lovely birthday dinner last night, celebrating my Mom’s 97th birthday! Actually, her presents didn’t get opened last night as we all went home to bed by 7:30 p.m.

But, my mom said she loves extended birthdays and I know what she means. We will open them today.

The dinner was made even more special by meeting and greeting good friends who were also dining there. And on the way out there were more greetings and kind words, from people we didn’t even know, which warmed my heart. It felt good to share our joy with others.

Dave (my brother) and Barba had brought Mom’s Birthday Cake with them from Grass Valley, California. A homemade Rum Bundt Cake. Such a wonderful thing for them to do! And no easy matter to transport it safely!

Good times, God. Good times! Thank You! Still, it felt really good to crawl into bed last night!
