Josh had another celebration yesterday with our extended family. Josh is one lucky man to have so many people who love him! He had chicken (his favorite!) for lunch, then bowled and ate pizza and french fries, then went back to Mamaw and Papaw's house for cake, ice-cream, and presents. It was all very exciting - and as soon as we got home - Out went the lights!!! Thanks everybody for a FANTASTIC day!
As we get ready for Josh's birthday party tomorrow what's he want to know???
"Is the band gonna play?"
Josh and I talk a lot about the two of us being a team. We've had that recurring conversation since he was small. He seems to gain confidence in himself knowing that I need him sometimes and it also makes him feel safe when life gets a little scary. Our birthday celebration today was a "team" effort, just the two of us here physically, but he got lots of love from friends and family elsewhere. He loved having family members call his cell phone to sing "Happy Birthday" to him and when I read comments from his Facebook page to him he got a big laugh! He also knows there's another celebration scheduled for Saturday. It was a great day all around. Thanks everybody for helping me make him happy. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing him smile and hearing him laugh - even when he's laughing at me!
It’s officially Josh’s birthday! Hard to believe he turns 26 today. He’s always loved birthdays – his or anybody else’s. Any excuse for him to wear a funny hat and sing. If there was cake involved that was a plus. Presents have never been that important to him, but he’s always extremely grateful for whatever he gets. He can make you feel like you gave him the world even if it’s just a pair of socks. As a matter of fact, one year when he was small, that’s what he asked Santa for. He said he was having a “sock shortage.” His little sayings like that have a way of sticking in our family’s vocabulary. He finds a way of stealing the show whether it’s his day or not. The consummate Rock Star! Can’t wait to see how he performs today – and Saturday when we have his bowling birthday party!
