Fifty and counting

Today is my 50th birthay. It doesn't feel any different than any other birthday. I'm not doing anything today because my son is throwing me a surprize party next weekend. Ha, ha. You can't trick me!!! He is inviting several new friends from town, my sister-in-law, my niece and nephew, all my cousins and one of my two remaining aunts.

I miss my mother really badly today. She never got to see either of her children turn 50. I am willing to celebrate because I know she would want me to. I haven't really celebrated a birthday since my brother died in 1985. I guess it's time.

Fifty is worth celebrating!!! Tonight Paul is making pizza and we are renting a movie. Alex gave me season three of Boston Legal. I guess that means that Paul will get season two next week.

This seems strange to me because of it just coming through to my Google reader today. I can relate to part of this, because My mother just celebrated her birthday on Sunday, I had a difficult time making the card because it kept hitting me that I won't be able to make another birthday card for her.
Sorry to add such a sad comment...but I knew you would understand.

I do understand JD. I also know you put your whole heart into that card and I'm sure she knew it too.
You've had a wonderful opportunity to let her know how much you love her.
