Was a suburban weekend snippet.
The conversation was about my upcoming 50th.
Now I had been thinking about this milestone for at least a year and as it was drawing closer - I decided I wanted to joyfully and thankfully celebrate it!
At first a big bash was being planned and I was off and running with a theme, prizes, a sound system, dancing, etc. - you get the picture – Woowie!!
But as things were starting to be put down on paper - it fell apart.
And because I had allowed myself to be so wrapped around the GIANT theme party, I couldn’t think of doing anything else.
I was not going to celebrate.
And for the record - Yes, I am my father’s stubborn daughter.
Fortunately my stubbornness wore off within a short time and I started doing some soul searching as to what is really important.
So when the question was posed to me this past weekend I knew exactly what to say....
On Sunday, August 31st at 7:00 p.m. – I am having my family and friends, whom I don’t always remember to tell how much I cherish, over to my house to treat them to some great homemade appetizers, desserts, wine, beer, bubbly and my favorite birthday cake.
Because at the end of the day it is about faith, family, friends and life - that is what we will celebrate.
i can't wait
