A Bittersweet Birthday

Today is my 31st birthday, and I’m going to work hard to enjoy it today, because it’s been one hell of a year. But I can’t deny that I also woke up to a bit of sadness, as I would have loved to be waking up next to Shane today. I know he would have kissed me good morning, made me coffee (if I could manage to get him out of bed), taken me out to dinner, wrote me a sweet card, gifted me with some kind of new cat-themed item, and surprised me with a sweet treat, like a cannoli or cupcake. Fortunately my cats helped me wake up with some loud meows and headbutts to the face. They always know how to start my day on a good note.


I’ve found myself thinking of him more today and getting a bit choked up, and it’s still only the morning. I know he would want me to enjoy my day, and I hope he is close by my side today. So that’s what I’m going to try to do. I’m going to finish my work day, and then party with some of my best girl friends tonight in the form of tapas, drinks and dancing. And when that’s over, I’ll count my blessings for another year to do good on this earth, for having the most amazing people in my life, and for having a guardian angel looking down on me for the rest of my life. Here’s hoping year 31 is a bit easier…

    Matt was sweetness personified, and he would have used this special occasion to show his love for you. We think of him each day. We hope you have a blessed birthday, and continue to know that you have a guardian angel close to you.
