Happy Birthday

It was my birthday yesterday. I had a lovely day. In the morning my son and grandsons called from Saskatoon to sing Happy Birthday to me. My sister took me out for lunch and we had a great visit. My one brother is in a very remote place in India but managed to find an internet connection so he could send me birthday wishes. My other brother who is on a business trip in China sent me a birthday text. Dave and I went to a movie in the evening with a friend and then out for cake and chai.  My Dad called at the end of the evening to wish me a Happy Birthday. I received lots of messages and cards and phone calls and e-mails and texts wishing me a Happy Birthday. It was a good celebration of another completed year of my life. Here are some highlights from that year.

  1. What a remarkable year you’ve had, MaryLou. I can’t imagine what the next year holds for you, but I expect it will be just as special.

    • You have had a remarkable year too Larry. Sometimes it just takes a special occasion to collect the memories and be grateful. Hope to see you on Thursday at the Anitas. Want to hear more about the book you are working on.

    Happy Belated Birthday. I’m always amazed at the amount of travel, book and Winnipeg info I gain by reading your blog each year. Often my 1 sister in Wpg. and another in Steinbach discuss your blogs. 🙂 Thanks for keeping it up.
