They say that the first year without a loved one is a year of firsts.
Today is my birthday. The first one I celebrate without my Mom or
my Daddy. I am looking back with love and looking forward with
love too. I was so lucky to have such loving parents.
I have shed a few tears but I am smiling too. I am remembering fun
birthdays of the past and looking forward to fun ones in the future too.
A birthday is just a personal day. One that should be spent doing
exactly what you love. To me it's not about presents or cake but about
reflection and excitement of a new year to come. While David is at
the office today, I will spend it watching some of my favorite old movies
and working on my dollhouse. For me it will be the perfect way to
celebrate the past and look forward to another happy year of life.
Of course my darling Bentley will be right next to me every step of
the way. Life is good.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
