And it’s been a good start already with well-wishes from friends through snail-mail cards, email and Facebook posts! After all, you turn 60 only once in your life, so MAKE IT COUNT!
I started celebrating Friday, (of course since it’s the official weekend starter-upper) with a box of two dozen beautifully decorated cookies sent by my Memphis sister, from a wonderful bakery in Germantown, Tennessee – Karen’s Cookies and Cupcakes – YUMMY!! We’ll be noshing on those for a while – especially today. I also received a gift card to one of my FAV book stores.
Then, Friday afternoon, a huge box appeared magically on my front porch. The thing looked like a coffin turned on its side. Well, that’s the first thought that went through my mind. But we wrestled the box inside. Surprisingly, it was rather lightweight. And inside is…..a beautiful acoustic Yamaha guitar! Oh. My. Word. My parents had given me one many, many years ago, and I had attempted to learn it when I was much younger. But, I had finally given up and given it away – you know how it is – life got in the way. It was probably my one regret, that I hadn’t stuck it out. So, now I have a second chance to learn a beautiful instrument. Thank you to my wonderful sisters and brothers-in-law (AND nieces!).
Now, we’re heading out for morning service and then my wonderful husband is taking me out for dinner ( right across from my FAV book store!) and then home for dessert (cookies and ice cream, of course!!)
So, as a birthday present to me from you, y’all have a wonderful day!!!
