My mom turned 50 yesterday so technically she’s half a century old already! It was a day for thanksgiving and at the end of the night, after a simple party we planned, the only word that could sum it all up was ‘perfect’.
But of course, arriving at the destination wasn’t perfect: this was bump along the way, but at least it wasn’t that dangerous. The dirty pebbles inside these amazing souvenir boxes my friend made for the party, are actually M&M’s with my mom’s face on it. If you’re not from the continental USA, I don’t recommend you order one online and have it shipped from point A to B to C without your direct supervision. Heat and a whole lot of “I don’t care if it’s fragile” handling caused the ink to fade, chips to crack and candies to melt and mold together. But of course, at the end of the day, we managed to pull it off pretty well. My mom was pretty pleased with the end product. Aren’t they nice?
This is shallow compared to what we’ve been through these past three years, but we just celebrated the biggest milestone/blessing we’ve ever had. Life isn’t perfect but we can always find a reason to smile, laugh and celebrate.
All is well. And all will be well.🙂
