Apologies for the sideways picture. This is the arrangement that G sent me for my birthday. I've received some beautiful arrangements in my lifetime but this one took the cake. Not sure if you can tell but it is a VERY tall vase with an orchid stem in it. 12 orchids blooming! If I were Pioneer Woman I'd be able to take a picture to do it justice but instead this will have to do. The best part was that he went to the florist and picked them out himself. Yay G!
Thanks everyone for all the FB birthday, email and phone call wishes. Truly I am overwhelmed by your kindness! This birthday has been a dang site better than last year which was spent in a 48 hour crying jag. Major PTSD flaring up....better change the subject.
By 6:30 AM I had been serenaded by 6 different people. Phone calls. My friend, Connie, wrote me the sweetest poem:
Relationships are like fairy tales....fleeting and hard to maintain.
However, you and I have discovered a wonderful friendship
even through the midst of our pain.
I know we'll be friends forever and no better will we find...
Because no one else could put up with us
We are two of a kind!
A phone call from Chrissi in Germany made my day. Out to dinner tonight with a friend. Tomorrow night is family celebration and my parents are taking us out to dinner.
Little Miss Priss has actually been trying hard today instead of punishing me for having a birthday. Yahoo!
