We celebrated at breakfast this morning.
Our friend Dede had a birthday on Monday. During the week she told me on the phone that she had a lovely weekend with several get togethers and now she was done.
Today I informed her that she was wrong. There was more. She was quite surprised. Then I told her that she had to share it with me, since my birthday was the next day, Saturday,. Yes, I brought the cake. I have recently been reminded that celebrating birthdays is important.Dede said that in her previous celebrations, she had not had birthday cake yet. She was thrilled.
Dede was 94 on Monday. I will be 77 tomorrow, Saturday. In this celebration I get to be the youngster! Dede is a very young 94 however. She is amazing. Dede celebrated often and long. I celebrated early, with more to come.
Then we had another reason to celebrate. Our friend Jeanne, who is in very fragile health, was able to join us for breakfast for the first time in a very long time, thanks to her wonderful son, Brad. As our friend Colleen said, it was also nice to have a handsome young man at our table.This evening Tom and I will go out so I can collect my free birthday burger at Red Robin. Tomorrow, my actual birthday, we'll visit gardens and then spend time with our son Jake. There will be more eating.
