December is Here

There’s something great about this month besides the Christmas-Hannukah holidays in addition to New Years Eve. Can you guess what it might be?  Yes it is Ms Millie’s birthday right around two weeks before Christmas, and I love it as much today as I did as a little girl.

There were times when presents were not affordable yet the many phone calls and cards made it special and meaningful.  Especially the birthday cake and candles to blow out. Mama always made me a cake when I was a little girl and I treasure those memories of a yellow cake with My T Fine chocolate pudding in the bottom layer……..Yummy!

For the past month I have pondered on just how many years have passed. And then,  I realize I have accomplished quite a bit.  “For example I am a Mother of three wonderful sons and  also a great grand-mother of two.  With my youngest of eight grand children being six months of age,  she will be my present when I celebrate my birthday this year.  Even though she is too little to help me blow out the candles I know having her near me will give me that extra “power”  to blow them out with a minimum amount of breaths.”

Can you tell how excited I am to be to spending my birthday with some of my family?  I feel like a kid again!

And, if this was my anniversary diamonds would be the traditional gift.  Lucky for me I already have diamonds of all sizes and ages.

My life thus far has been quite a journey with rocks some tiny stones and then the Diamonds!

    Hey Millie: Can’t believe we’re 3/4 of a century. My how time flies. Think it’s been about 7 years since our visit, but, I must say that a week doesn’t go by that I don’t think of you . Well, just a note to say hello and wish you a happy birthday!! Your High School Buddy, (it sure was fun while it lasted) Patti Tedder

    Yes it is amazing to me too Patti and Donald Simon also is right with us. 75 and we are still in our prime. I think of us having lunch in our favorite restaurant after school and wish we could go back again to those wonderful teen-age years. Thanks for being an amazing friend all of these years….
