Usually I try not to overhear conversations when I dine out. But tonight was an exception. My favorite place is used for many family celebrations. Tonight it was a birthday party for a lady in her late 70's - attended by apx 15 people - middle aged - & their kids. One had organized a 'Memory Book'. Each person had written their favorite story about the lady = with pictures etc. They all read their page aloud. All called her aunt. She took one as a girl to her first live performance, another a special talk as she entered womanhood, a young man's first adult conversation, etc etc. It was so special. Lots of love for their Aunt. Think quite a few people listened in. When they brought out her cake, most people joined the birthday song. It was nice to see these now adults let the woman know how much they appreciated her.
Make one remember to talk to my own special people soon.
That is very sweet gift. I hope that when I get old that my nieces and nephews have fond memories of me. I try to spend as much time with them as I can- they are such wonder people. 122 days ago
THose wee ones are always so adorable! The girl with the tiny one on her chest reminded me of a pup I had when I was in grad school. He'd peek his little head out of my hoodie! How fortunate for the woman in the restaurant to be so loved! Yes, so important to appreciate others while we can! 123 days ago
Such a sweet idea and so thoughtful ( about the birthday dinner) I belong to a Red Hat group and at 70 there is only one lady younger. We have been together for quite some time and this would be such a tribute to the group.
