I have gotten over 900 facebook messages today... I didn't even realize that I knew that many people. Such a wonderful day. Text messages, phone calls, birthday cards and gifts... my friends and family and amazing.
The students today had made me a birthday card and (with the help of another teacher) put together a talking picture frame that sang happy birthday and said, "We love you Miss. R!" So great :)
Vanessa and I had a delicious birthday dinner - eggplant parm (from Mommy) and gnocchi! Sooo good! She's making me a pirate cake now too! (It's a cake in the shape of a pirate ship! Yum!)
Here are a few of my favorite messages:
You're amazing. And wonderful. And now one more year beautiful and full of life and wonderful experiences. I hope this birthday finds you in the greatest of spirits, and the sun comes out just for you. You definitely deserve it.
Happy 26th year to me.
