A Little CELEBRATION Day...

Kind of emotional start this morning. As I said in my previous post, I'll be playing on the obstacle course with the ROTC kids at Camp Bullis today. Just wanted to post this real quick before heading out...
Today is my birthday, so there is one thing to have fun with. But I am also celebrating that I finished this last round of chemo two days ago. Will have tests in a few weeks to see how I responded to that. My kids and my boyfriend, Chuck, conspired (grin) to give a most wonderful gift. My daughter is on the planning committee for Relay for Life at Norwich University where she is attending. She had been talking to Chuck via e-mail and told him she would like for me to be there to participate. As my gift, Chuck paid for me to fly up there in April, along with rental car, Shelbie is paying for the hotel, and Tyler saved his money for food and incidental expenses. Tyler came bounding into my room this morning to wish me a happy birthday and asked with a grin, "so what did ya get?", and he got choked up before I did when I was trying to tell him thank you for being in on the conspiracy. :) Am I blessed, or what?
So now I'm off to play in the cold, have fun making a fool of myself, and as I joked before...hopefully not become a poster child for Depends. :)

Happy Birthday, my friend!! What a wonderful conspiracy/birthday present. There's a lot of love there! I've been bad about checking my favorite blogs the past couple of days so I didn't see your georgeous gift cards and note cards. So pretty. In fact I have the same paper you used for the teacher's note cards. Doncha just love Anna Griffin! Hope you don't mind if I steal shamelessly! I've gotta get a monogram kit! I haven't tried the Prismacolors yet, but you can be sure I am itching to! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Luv'n'hugs!

God's blessings be upon you. Will pray that you are healed. That Chuck sounds like a keeper. :-)

Would love to know how you did.

Happy belated, very belated, BD!!! I had no idea you were battling cancer/chemo -- maybe I don't read very well -- so sorry -- but so grateful to hear that you are finished with your chemo. Praying all has gone well since!!! Oh, and I think I could rival you on being the poster child for Depends -- LOL!!!
