Belated January 8, 2010- Our Birthday...
My friend Kathy, with her youngest daughter, M., and me...
One of his surprises was a package sent from my parents... :-)
My oldest son, Antonio, was born on my 24th birthday. We celebrated our special celebration day simply this year. I originally had a party planned for him, but we had to adjust those plans. I was disappointed about that, but I had no choice. We ended up just having an ice cream cake for us.
Then for a special birthday treat for me, Anthony gave me a choice of where I wanted to go in the evening- Just us. Instead of picking a nice meal with him, I chose to go to a special service at my friend, Kathy's, church. It was a blessing, one I desperately needed.
Thank you for your patience with me, Jesus, and for loving me through and in my insecurities and emotional moments and in my failings--- through each and every moment, day, challenge, and triumph of my life. Sigh...I love You. And, thank you, Anthony, for that night.
