Happy Birthday to me!
My birthday week started off with a surprise flower delivery on Monday afternoon. This helped put me in a better mood. I was feeling pretty sad about Tracy being gone, frustrated with this waiting game, and frustrated by Addison's fussiness. The dozen roses and box of chocolates did just the trick to put a smile on my face. On my birthday I got many calls, emails, and Facebook posts from family and friends. Thank you to all of you for remembering me on my birthday. The best part was the package I received from Tracy. Last week he kept mentioning that he was working on my present and then he told me he mailed it. I had to wait til we were on the phone to open it. So I did. I opened the package to find a sweet card and a box of Uno cards. I said, "oh, Uno cards!" Tracy said, "Yes, we're gonna play Uno while you read the letter I wrote you that's in the Uno box." I said, "how are we gonna play?" He said, "I kept half of the cards!" I was quiet surprised at his response but glad nonetheless. I read the "grocery list" of things and he would explain how I was like that object. For example, Klondike Bar. He said, "I'd do almost anything for you, you know, What would you do for a Klondike Bar?" We played Uno while I listed things off the "grocery list" and he told me how I was like those things to him. Oh another one: an eclair (ap?) doughnut, b/c your sweet like the other doughnuts but not as big as round. Last night, we finally finished the 30 something things on the list and I won the final game of Uno, 5 games to his 4. Lastly, Meredith took me to, Max's Wine Dive for my Birthday dinner while Aaron watched the kiddos. Comfort food meets fine, wine dinning. Delicious! The best steak I've had in a long while!
Some of you might be thinking "that's all Tracy got you?" Well, we celebrate our second birthdays now, when we became Christians, and give gifts then. That's when I got my awesome camera. By the way, I need a book on how to operate my camera so I can take better pics. Just an Xmas idea in case you were wondering. And no I'm not saying X-mas, X is the first letter in the Greek word Christ (Xristos). So Christ-mas, Xristos-mas, Xmas.
Thanks again for the b-day wishes!
