Birthday Mosaic



On Saturday night, the doorbell rang as Tim was looking for a movie to watch that evening. He opened the door to find our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter on the doorstep, bearing pizza and early birthday wishes. He was surprised and happy. I had pretended to putter around making dinner in the kitchen, knowing that pizza was on the menu. 

Today around noon, the doorbell rang again. Our two daughters and their husbands stood on the doorstep wishing their father a happy birthday. His birthday is tomorrow, Monday.

It's a good thing he's not overly observant around the kitchen. I had cooked enough food for the 8 of us as he wandered in and out, not suspecting anything. We laughed, chatted, went for a short walk, enjoyed being together, and celebrated the blessing that Tim is to all of us, as husband, father and grandfather.

  7. Men! Not always the observant types. What a great mosaic celebrating a birthday and family. I can't believe how big your little grandgirlie is already. How'd she do that so fast? And her grins match the family's...she's adorable.

  8. Your family must have delighted in surprising Tim and I can imagine how happy you were as you prepared a meal for them all. I've never seen you with a bigger smile than holding your precious granddaughter Lorrie. Wonderful smiles all round
