Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Friend
Last night was unbelievable! My wonderful husband and my sister gave me an amazing SURPRISE 40th Birthday Party. They really got me, both in surprising me and understanding me. My sister made a collage with pictures of me and with the words, "daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend," and had everyone sign it. She gave me a toast to which she spoke of the many roles I play (many times feeling unappreciated and taken for granted). Last night I felt loved and appreciated by all of my family and friends. They all wrote such kind words on the collage. My sister also gave me a necklace made by Lisa Leonard, (a creative jewelry artist that I follow online). It was hand stamped with the words, "daughter, sister, wife, mother." I love it and will cherish it forever! I now know how well my friends know me, they made all of my favorite foods and they gave me gifts that are so me. My friend Marybeth made me a hand stamped bracelet with the names of my 3 treasures on it, it's beautiful and so creative.
