It's Grant's Birthday and....

I had a scan this morning which, as I just learned is cancer free!  One minor thing is that I have a hole in one of my lungs but it appears to be healing so we just have to check it in 3 to 4 weeks to be sure it does not turn to infection.  Happy Birthday Grant and thank God!  Happy Thursday!  Love, Ang

It's my birthday!!!!

As many of you know, I have never been big on my birthday, I work, I exercise, but there are a few things that I do, my boys kisses (even the big one), and ice cream cake.  On my big birthdays, 30, 40 and soon 50, I like to have parties, but the ones in between never USED to phase me.  I called them "tweeners".  Then, I got cancer and every birthday is a blessing.  Yesterday my family had a family day.  I went shopping with the boys.  Grant and Mason got the same shirt.  We picked up Mason's new bike.  The boys "helped" me with the weekly shopping.  Nolan bought me a reusable cup at Starbucks in Fred Meyer from one of our baseball mom's and I filled it with my Starbuck's birthday latte.  We were going to go to the pool, but we never got there.  My favorite tree was blooming in the back yard.  The one that shades the patio and you look up into a million little flowers.  It is the best.  I got, not one, but two bouquets of flowers and, my ice cream cake.  Today, on my actual birthday, I had plans to do yoga, but my buddy bailed so I did too.  My Mom invited me to lunch, but we decided that we had had so many birthday lunches we should postpone it until later and then, right before I got in the shower, the door bell rang.  I thought it is just the UPS guy.  I ignored it.  It rang again.  I put my night shirt back on and went downstairs.  My boss/neighbor and my NEPHEW were at the door.  Both with flowers!  Now, my boss/neighbor has always been awesome about my birthday.  But my nephew has not been with me on my birthday since he was living in Seattle in 1993/4.  Best birthday surprise I could have!  We had a coffee and then he jetted to work, but we talked and laughed and I am so glad that all my plans were changed and that I was there with him with my teeth unbrushed, in my night shirt, hair unwashed for a few days and he still hugged on me!  I love him.  Then, I checked my phone and my email, and Facebook.....and I felt so loved.  Birthdays are precious....every single one.  Love, Ang (now 45)
