I did it for me!

 I had a “rough” birthday this year.  This is the 4th birthday since Bob died.  I got 3 birthday cards, one from my financial advisor and two from wonderful friends, none from my children or grandchildren, who are all adults.

I did get a happy birthday text from one daughter

I did get a phone message from the same daughter.

What saved me from crying was that another wonderful friend contacted me, and said, “Let’s go out to dinner and celebrate your birthday.”  So I went to a great place with my friend Ruth.  We always have a wonderful time and July 8th was no exception.

Thank god for wonderful friends!

This is Ruth and me at a previous dinner date.

Last year when I started traveling so much, I stopped posting a Happy Birthday Cake photo on everyone’s FB page.  I thought that I’d miss someone when I was gone from home, that was my reasoning and believe it or not I missed doing it!  So after my own birthday this year, I said to myself, “What the heck, just do it.”  So last week I resumed my Happy Birthday Cake photos on my FB friends’ timelines.

I did it for me!

P.S.  This is not a pity party, I just wanted to vent.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
