As a kid I loved that my birthday was on the 10th of November because the next day was the 11th which is Veteran's Day and that meant I had the day off after my birthday from school. It gave me a whole day to play with my birthday presents.
When I worked on the floor for a department store, one of the perks was that we got our birthday off with pay. Back then, I probably slept in and enjoyed the day.
Today, I took the day off to get some errands ran, go to a final doc appointment and go to Hospice and be able to stay the whole time without having to rush out and go back to work. What a way to start a birthday! How much better can a birthday be celebrated than with your Hospice Sisters? Knitting, laughing, tears, coffee, donuts!
And presents - The bestest presents are yarn! And I received so many cool yarns. I cannot wait to kick back this weekend and plan.
I am so truly blessed in my friends. These ladies, I just cannot tell you how much I treasure their friendships and how much they continue to change my life and enrich it. They make birthdays special, knitting fun and give so much meaning to friendship.
What a great 59th birthday today was!!
