You see, another year is a true gift. Each day is a gift from our Creator. When you are ill, you realize that very quickly. You realize how fragile life is.
My family did a great job of making me feel loved and celebrated. A homemade, gluten free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. My fave! Books to read. Gift cards to enjoy. New clothing. And even more special than all the gifts are the words written in those sweet and thoughtful cards -- they bring strength and comfort and joy to my heart.
All day long I received phone calls from family members with voices singing "Happy Birthday to you". My 3 year old niece nearly brought me to tears with her joyous little voice on the phone. So very precious.
The people behind these thoughtful tokens of love are the reason to celebrate! I call them
People that make life worth living.
So I thank you. Thank you for your love, your encouragement, your prayers, your support, and for being you. For being a part of me - a part of my life.
