This afternoon John and I went out on a long date. We were going to see a movie, but ended up passing three hours just talking. On our way home, Caleb called me to ask if he and his girlfriend Katie could take us out to dinner. After asking a few questions, John and I said yes, and I really thought it would be just the four of us out to dinner.
Cars were parked in the back. I had already had my birthday celebration. I had already gotten gifts from everyone earlier in the week.
So imagine my surprise when I walked into the restaurant filled with friends and family!
I was totally caught off guard-- what an amazing surprise!
I was fine until I started looking around the room to see who was there.
That is when I began to cry-- happy tears.
It was all good!
My brother in law drove down from the Bay Area and my cousin who I had not seen in ages drove up from Murrieta-- not to mention everyone in between.
Thank you John for never making life boring. You are the best husband! Thank you kids for blessing me like you do. You make this Mama so proud! Thank you Mom for always supporting me. Thank you Aunt Tanya for always being there. Thank you Mom and Dad for being such amazing in-laws. Thank you Uncle Jack, Tim and Diane, Steve and Kathy, John and Naomi, Jenny and Joe, Cousin Kathy, Jeremy, Katie, Olivia, Emily, Sandy, and Pauline.
I love all of you!
