September 9, 2016.
Today is a rather weird day. Half the day I spent in confusion and wondering if old age is getting to me.
I was under the impression we were going to celebrate my Birthday this evening, but hubby tells me we do it this coming Sunday. We always celebrate on a weekend, so why would I even think it was today?
Our oldest daughter calls, wishes me a Happy Birthday and mentions she is dropping off some left-over rice and beans. I am not up for rice and beans, but at least I won't have to cook.
She drops of a huge pot and returns to her car to get something else out of it. The pot is empty and before I can figure out what is going on, there is a knock on the door.
I open it and..... surprise!!! Isabella steps in holding a huge present. She says: "Is for your Birthday."
She is not alone. Lily, Kc, and Mom are with her and suddenly we have a house full of company.
Rice and beans turn out to be Chinese food and I receive gifts galore.
Little lily steals the show. She takes a few steps and goes back and forth between Opa and Mom.
As soon as she hears music she starts dancing and she is talking up a storm.
Kc and Bell are playing and everyone is having a good time, including me.
Everything makes sense now.
I should have known. It is not a weird day. It is my Birthday.
And my confusion can be contributed to well-hidden surprises hanging in the air!
