Happy Birthday

 Who would have ever thought that a 6 1/2 month term, 2 lb. baby born in 1959 would be celebrating her 53rd birthday!

My birthday request was always the same, my mothers german chocolate cake by scratch, what I wouldn’t do to have that for my birthday just one more time.

Life changes so much, and now that I move forward into my parents steps, I pray that they knew how much I loved them.

Today was a quiet day, lots of birthday wishes, loving words and happiness.

It has been many years since I have had a birthday surprise.

My surprise was a family tradition, not my family but someone elses.

The song Happy birthday has never sounded sweeter.

Today I am grateful for family traditions, even if they aren’t my own.
