So...around lunchtime, there was much whispering and planning. I was not allowed to look. After a while...TA-DA! Lunch was served. Ham Fried Rice, Tossed Salad and Apple Slices.
What a nice and tasty surprise! Planned exclusively by Cupcake and prepared by Steve and Cupcake. Pretty cool, huh?
We were invited to our good friend's house for dinner. We had a very relaxing time with uplifting conversation and great fellowship. They gave me a nice gift and then brought out this decadent chocolate cake and ice cream! It was really sweet, figuratively and literally! YUM!
My gift from my family will be coming soon, but the best gift was that nobody fought all day. No one was defiant. No behaviors. Only kindness. All birthday long. What a reprieve from the tough days we've been having!
I went to bed with a long, happy sigh and a content smile on my face. Who could ask for more?
Oh, there's more. While I was cleaning the basement, I found this newly written list.
- Get Mom a present.
- Make Mom a lunch.
- Make Mom a card.
- Make the (something).
- and the last thing is to go to our friends' house.
Made my heart melt.
Blessings to you,
