Post Birthday Weekend Summary

In case you were wondering, and even if you weren’t, I had a lovely Birthday and weekend.  I didn’t do anything exciting, but I got several unexpected surprises.  First my coworkers got me a lovely card and wrote some beautiful words inside.  The kindness of some of those words even brought me to tears once
