When I came home from my birthday massage, I arrived to find
…both stairways blocked with signs and tape.
I ducked under and climbed the stairs.
I arrived at the door and read these signs taped to the screen door.
To the left on the railing were chips and fresh water!
The chips were covered with a paper towel….a surprise for me!
There was a timer, so I would be sure to wait one full minute.
I heard: “You can come in now!”
I opened the door to a neatly wrapped laundry basket.
And out popped…
My youngest boy!!!!
Shouting “Happy Birthday!”
And throwing messages in the air!
By Far the Best Birthday Surprise EVER!!!!!
Wouldn’t you agree?

I do so miss those small miracles. Having grown children is wonderful as it says I have successfully graduated and am now a proud parent who managed to raise full-grown successful kids (one a computer guru with a strong spiritual interest and the other a PH.D.-as of next Saturday!). However, I still miss some of those things.
Yay, to you and your children. Proud papa, you are! I am very pleased with the young men I have the honor to share my life with….they are each unique and wise….each a challenge and huge blessing….I am very fortunate to be their mom. 🙂 Sam
Sam if the post made me so happy .. you must be smiling ear to ear….what a beautiful gesture….oh our kids just make our life so beautiful….
big hugs to your son..he is just so cute
love n hugs to both 🙂
awwww…soooo sweeeet!!! made me teary-eyed…i remember my boys when they were little…they’re both grown up now and have each a child of their own…i agree, Sam dear…that would be the best birthday surprise for me too!!!! think that’s kinda funny…that sign which says “I Think I Brained My Damage” on your son’s shirt…lol…
hehe; actually it was a friend’s shirt that he borrowed. Cracked me up. I’m glad you noticed. You’re a grandma then! Wow! It was the best surprise ever. 🙂
such a sweet gift
