In his birthday card to me, Abbott described me as someone who is 'loving, caring, and loves children.' (Thank you, Abbott.) And, he said that I 'make excellent food,' and tuck him in at night 'nicely'. It's the best self description I could ever hope for. For his part, Cal worked in a fashion true to himself, carefully, precisely, to make his first ever bubble letters on my card. Alexi made the weekend for me - he knows me well, and he worked hard to make it special in the big and small ways he knew would matter and make a difference to me. And you people! I still can't get over the emails, cards, phone calls, text messages, and facebook and twitter birthday wishes that came in all weekend long. Thank you a thousand times over.
Another year gone by, a new one starting, and I can't imagine anywhere else I'd rather be. xo
