Day 174: Best Birthday Surprise Ever

When I came home from my birthday massage, I arrived to find

Please read all signs

…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.

Happy Birthday Mom We Love You


Knock. Then wait for one minute.

To the left on the railing were chips and fresh water!

The chips were covered with a paper towel….a surprise for me!

I knocked.

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?

  5. 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.
