I woke up and opened some thoughtful gifts and enjoyed breakfast with the family. Then we went about the normal routine of preschool, work drop off, homeschool, etc. For lunch I met with my parents and the fam for lunch and more gifts.
I returned home and was gifted with so many messages and emails and Facebook posts. I talked with both of my brothers and was just feeling so very loved. I was sitting at the table thinking about how thankful I am to know such kindness and support and how I just wish everyone could feel such love when the doorbell rang. A flower delivery woman was there with flowers from a dear friend. I may or may not have cried.
Later my mom took the girls to prep a cake while Eric took me out for dinner and a walk.
Check out my hand earrings!
And here is the cake my mother made and the girls decorated!
I went to bed last night feeling truly overwhelmed by the kindnesses extended to me or on my behalf. Several people told me that they had eaten vegan or given a stranger a compliment! Animals were sponsored. Honestly I am just so deeply moved by the goodness, by your goodness! I am inspired and want to work to live up to all of you. Thank you.
