April 30

Today is my birthday. The second birthday I've celebrated since I was diagnosed with cancer. Birthdays seem so much more special now - now that the prospect of not having any more became a reality two years ago. Thanks to my amazing family, our crazy COF staff, and my sweet friends, I had a great birthday week! There were fresh flowers, shared meals, giant cookies, sweet cards, Facebook messages, surprise gifts, beautiful (?) singing, time with family, lots of laughter, and, of course, ice cream!  Thank you to all of you who made me feel so special today! And thank you to my creator who saw fit to let me live to see another birthday! 

"Indeed, if a man should live many years, let him rejoice in them all..." Ecclesiastes 11:8 


  1. I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday! Happy belated birthday to you! It sounds like it was perfect!

  2. Another birthday for you is also a special blessing for all of us who love you!
