Today is my birthday. I didn't expect much to happen this year, but I got some mini-surprises that made my day. I got a birthday cake that was made just for me (the first time since I was a little kid.) I got a handful of birthday cards - I love getting cards for any occasion. I got mostly money for presents, but did receive a world map that lets you mark-off the places you have been to. I love maps and travelling and so it was a good gift for me. I had a nice BBQ dinner and afterwards the cake.
Of course there was one person I wish could have been here to help me celebrate my birthday. We received a letter today that said the gravestone was now there. I wish we lived closer (we aren't even in the same state) so I could go visit and see it. I know this person was looking down on me today. All-in-all I can't complain about my birthday this year.
