Now, Gwen always remembers my birthday and makes it a HUGE deal, if only a sweet note and noisy phone call. A few years ago she sent me flowers. She always sends me a card. She is the only one that ever makes a big deal about it. My husband says "it's just another day, big deal". My mother lives a busy life. My kids, well, they're kids. Tuck is really excited about my birthday this year.
I don't know why it makes me so happy for people to try to make a day special for me. I never would expect anything, so it is all that much sweeter.
I am a blessed woman.
