Last month was my birthday. Birthdays have always been very special holidays for me. I can thank my mom for that. Each year me and each of my 6 siblings would get a birthday party to celebrate our life. These mostly consisted on neighborhood friends coming over, goofing around and then eating homemade cake (or maybe having a cake fight).
Things do change with age though. I’m finding that most birthdays are satisfactory with a day off of work and dinner that I don’t have to cook. I still insist on having a homemade birthday cake though!
This year I decided to reach out and ask for a particular gift from my friends and family. The gift I wanted was a homemade birthday card. When my birthday got closer I began to wonder if anyone remembered my post about my birthday gift and then the first card came, then the next and the next until…Holy Moses I had 21 birthday cards!!
I am still blown away by the astounding friends and family I have. That they took the time and love to hand make a card just for me. I am so extremely blessed. I’m welling up with tears just thinking about this now. I truly feel like my cup runneth over. My 32nd birthday will now surprisingly go down as one of my favorite birthdays!
I cannot help but share these awesome gems that I received. Enjoy!
