Celebrating my birthdayMy birthday is tomorrow. I will be 70 years old. This past weekend we had a party celebrating my birthday.

When we moved to Northern California from Los Angeles 30 years ago, I was just turning 40. It was a significant birthday and I wanted to have a party but I knew very few people so we just went out to dinner. I remember being disappointed that I couldn’t have a big celebration.

70 is a pretty significant birthday too. I’ve only lived here for less than 8 months but I’ve already made friends I know will be friends for the rest of my life. And I’m close enough that both my children, my grandchildren and daughter-in-law could be here to help me celebrate.

We had a beautiful party with people we love. I was thrilled to have my friends meet my children and grandchildren. As I blew out the candles, I didn’t make a wish. I only thought about how grateful I was to have such wonderful people surrounding me and helping me celebrate. I felt and feel truly blessed.

Here are just a few pictures from the evening.
