My oldest son gave me a big hug in the morning and wished me a happy birthday.
My friend Barbara sent me a multicolored bouquet of two dozen roses for my table at home.
My friend Darren took me to lunch in Palo Alto, ordered a pile of small plates for us to enjoy. Then he took me to Watercourse Way for some hot tubbing and relaxing.
Did I mention HE brought me a bouquet of flowers too?
All in all, I had a wonderful day and it was capped off with the Cubs winning the World Series in extra innings.
So many people wrote on my Facebook wall, wishing me a very happy birthday.
I got a little choked up seeing all those well wishes on my wall.
Old high school friends like Debbie, Monica, and Jeanne posted to my wall along with new friends like Jayme, Sidney and Kathleen.
It was so lovely.
I just want to gather everyone in a great big hug with my arms around all of you and give you a nice, long squeeze.
I heard from my birthmom (but not my birthfather, which is par for the course). She sent me a lovely message of love and support. I have hopes that someday he will as well.
A BIG shout out goes to my Castro Valley family who showered me with love and affection. I heart them all!
And finally, my love to everyone who ready my blog “One Lucky Baby” and enjoyed it, especially Ava, Her, and amfeelingright – who paused a minute to post a comment on my blog.
I am truly blessed.
What more could a girl ask for?
