End of October

On Friday – as the end of October approaches – so does the 3rd of this month’s 3 generations of birthdays. Of course Maria’s has been celebrated the longest.

It’s now been 53 years since we met, and the first party I went to with her was a late October birthday party for the friends celebrating birthdays in 1970.

Been a while I guess.

I don’t think Maria’s birthday party will be a week long affair like Susannah’s, but hopefully the grandkids will be out on the weekend to help her celebrate. As we get older it’s increasingly important to remember these anniversaries and especially be thankful for the person who’s having them.

So Happy Birthday dear Maria and thanks for being part of my life every day. All my love.
