I received a call from my son’s friend, telling me Dustin’s friends were throwing him a last minute surprise birthday party. I had 45 minutes to get ready, call my husband home, and drive across town. There was absolutely no time to purchase a birthday card if we wanted to arrive on time.
I noticed a thank you card. I thought, “Aha! This will do!”
I wrote inside the card Happy Birthday!
I thanked Dustin for being an awesome son.
I thanked him for being the man he had become.
I thanked him for the wonderful way he treats his father, brother and me.
I also placed money in the card. Easy peasy and always appreciated.
When someone turns a year older, we can be reminded and thankful for the number of years a person’s life has graced ours.
