Ladies & Gentlemen

24 Candles

Posted in Uncategorized by MW on November 8, 2011

Today is my birthday. Due to some unexpected mono for my husband we are taking it easy this evening and reminiscing about the past year – what a year it has been. We had many plans for this birthday celebration, but they were all foiled by sickness. However, I was able to indulge: tamales, two expensive magazines from Berkeley Bowl, Semifrieddis Rosemarie bread, wearing my Christmas bell sweater during dinner.  Happy Birthday to me!

…and many thanks to:
Mom: for giving me life.
Parents: for raising me, giving me money for gas, loving me, helping me succeed.
All the Woods: for texting me birthday wishes.
Cheri and Family: for sending me lots of birthday cards and money for pizza.
Family, Friends, Students: for writing on my wall, sometimes having FB is so worth it!
My Boss: for getting me a cake with my name on it.
Jare Bear: for loving me, sending me beautiful flowers, synchronizing air kisses ’cause we can’t actually kiss right now.

Sappy, but honest note: I sincerely believe in the magic of birthdays. As long as the ones you love recognize your existence and are grateful to have you around your day will be bliss. Guaranteed.
