Dungarees Ablaze is the nicest person alive (even if I didn’t realize that I knew her IRL for far too long). You will never meet anyone nicer than her! So when she asked to hear about a birthday I just had to oblige.
Birthdays have always been special for me, until I moved away from Missouri a few years ago I always celebrated with my grandma. I missed being born on her birthday by a mere one hour and 58 minutes. And I have plans of going back next year to celebrate with her once again.
February 8th, 2007 marked my 40th birthday. I always thought if I reached 40 I would be decrepit and useless; I’m happy to say that I still feel full of vim and vigor! I’m looking forward to number 50! Just a couple of weeks after my fortieth birthday I received the bestest present ever! Another birth-day!
My first grandchild was born on February 24th, 2007. A miracle in so many ways. When I was diagnosed with cancer, October 2005, I feared I would never see grandchildren. When my daughter was diagnosed with PCOS in March 2006 we thought she would never have children. We are so blessed to have Tristan in our lives!
