Giving Thanks, part 26: Golden

Today I am grateful for my Golden Birthday: I’m turning 27 on the 27th.  And let me tell you, when it’s your golden birthday I really hope you’re married to a fella like JW because he will make a huge deal out of it for you.
 
John threw me a surprise birthday party tonight!!  
 
Evidently he had been planning it for weeks and I had no clue.  He just said that we were going out for a birthday date on Saturday night, that John’s parent would tend James, and that his family wanted to celebrate my birthday that night when we would drop James off, before we left for the date.  We got there and headed down to the basement where Mama H. had put all the pressies she got me and–BAM–everyone yelled “SURPRISE!”  It was really out of a dream!!  My whole family {except Jake/Taci and Georgina–miss you guys!} was there, John’s whole family was there, some of my INCREDIBLE friends were there, and it was decorated with golden streamers everywhere.  There was delicious food and cake, too.  It was all just so special and so heart-warming.The best part of the evening was when John presented me with this binder he had compiled of all these different love notes from a ton of my family and friends.  He had emailed a lot of people and invited them to write me a letter for my golden birthday and John put them all together for me.  It is a TREASURE.  

 
Thank you so much, Lover, for making my birthday a big deal, even though you had a fever and cough tonight.  You do so much for me.  You are the greatest gift I could ever be given.
