Birthdays Make Memories

Birthday cakes! I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like birthday cake.

This past week, our writers group brought food to share in celebration of Thanksgiving.

But we shared something else too. My birthday. One of the ladies brought a very large cake. On the top, she had them put my picture and the pictures of the books we’ve published and some very touching words.IMG_1686

Birthdays are made special when friends get together and celebrate. The cake was the symbolic “icing on top” so to speak. Some wonderful memories were formed that day. Memories I will take with me and recall not just at my birthdays but other times throughout the year. I was overwhelmed to hear the members say such nice things  about me and what I had meant to them. Those words I heard were heart received and appreciated more than I can say.

Birthdays are made special when we share them with others.

I hope your birthday is special!

    • Hi Kathleen, thank you for your wishes. I know, that cake was really something. I was amazed all that could be put on a cake. Wish you could have had some with us. It tasted wonderful.
