This was the weekend for birthdays!
It started Friday night with celebrating Mr. M’s oldest son’s birthday. I checked off everything I was supposed to bring before leaving my house. Pictionary Junior, check. Marker board, check. Markers, check. Whoonu game, check, Taboo Junior, check.
Kass and I went through this list twice. Yep, got everything. Then we got in the vehicle to head towards the party. As we get almost to Mr. M’s house… it hit me, like a ton of bricks. Yes I got everything but the gift for his son!!
So I had to show up with all the games and no gift and explained to E as he was opening presents, one more was coming later this weekend. What a dork, that’s me.
That wasn’t a very good start to the five birthdays we ended up celebrating within my personal circles over the weekend.
Saturday was my niece's birthday party. Rose was turning 10. Here’s Kass at that party sporting a lovely party hat and her new braces.
And the birthday girl…Rose, my niece:
Saturday was also Mr. M’s mom’s birthday and Kass was going to a friend’s slumber birthday party right after leaving her cousin’s party. Whew. This was getting crazier by the minute.
Then Sunday, the fifth birthday for the weekend was a dear gentleman I have known at my church for years… he turned 80.
What a milestone to say the least. He doesn’t even look 80 and you will never meet a sweeter or more gentle kind of guy. A true gentleman. As he celebrated, I thought… what a legacy this man has to claim from his own story.
What would you like your legacy to be?
Find yourself…keeping it real.
