Tomorrow I will be 50!! Less than 2 hours to the 5th. Technically I wont be 50 until sometime in the afternoon.
I will be celebrating this birthday for the first time with my mother and my sister!! Yep you heard that right! And all thanks to Keith!
I told Keith I expected something BIG this year. And he did it. Keith brought my Bio Mom in and my half sister, they showed up on my front porch this evening to eat dinner with me and my kids and grandkids, her grand kids and greats, her nephews and greats.
Keith would not tell me what, but something was going to happen this weekend. Tuesday he told me we were having dinner at the house Thursday night, and then something else on my actual BDay Friday. Wednesday he bought rib eye for use to have dinner with the kids, and maybe some others. I told him I knew there would be more than just the kids, because we wouldn’t feed just the kids rib eye. He agreed, but nothing else.
Keith told me to have the house ready by 5, and get the beds ready in case some stay over. Keith came in at 4:30 and started getting the meat ready and I helped him with the salad. Keith got a call, then went out front, to meet whomever I guessed that much 😉 Then I saw Bio and Sis walking up with him. I knew them even though we have only seen each other about 3 times. I had prayed and dreamed of this. My first thought was “who do I know that looks like Bio and Sis?’ Then I wondered if I was suppose to just stand there looking out the window or pretend I had not seen them until they walked in or…. To hell with it, I am running out the door! “HE did this for me.” He did this for me” He brought you here.” I am hugging and crying– I DONT CRY– Hell with that too! I am so happy so happy so happy on my happy happy birthday!!!!!
Pictures? Nope– not really- Keith has a couple of odd ones of us hugging, he thought he was filming– Old people can’t run these new fangled phones. I will steal those later.
No pictures of all the kids with them- But they are in my head. My heart is about to explode it is so full! My cup runneth over and over and over.! They saw other family members in the faces of my kids and grandkids. My kids saw me in their faces. Ahhhh to belong.
Bio Mom and Sister have gone back to their hotel room– I wish they had stayed here, but I think it is better for them to do it this way. Probably as overwhelming for they as I , and I am in MY home. Tomorrow we will go shopping, first time to be 50 and shop. First time to shop with my Bio Mom and Sister— I can’t wait! I will never sleep.
