SLICE #6- Happy Birthday
And I have to admit,
I have not been all that excited about it.
It's a big one.
A really big one.
I'm feeling really old.
And more than a little bit un-special.
But it was a nice day.
Both of my sisters and my brother-in-law texted me this morning.
As did a couple of friends.
My mom sent an absolutely beautiful bouquet of flowers.
And my work family celebrated big time.
Somehow, despite staggered lunches,
and the ongoing craziness of life in schools
they all managed to gather in the library
to surprise me at lunch time
We had yummy lemon cake
And they just generally made me feel
all around special
At the end of the day
all seventy of our sixth graders
and the best ever sixth grade team
crowded into my classroom
to sing happy birthday
and give me a group card
they had made
and I felt really loved
even though i had to stay until after seven
for the principal selection committee
it was a really lovely day
that said, it would have been a little bit lovelier
if either of my two sons
had even bothered to wish me
