My Facebook friends did not forget and I received many wonderful wishes. I heard from every friend I have who does not live in Pensacola. They called and wished me joy in person.
My friends here in Pensacola did the same and a few neighbors even went farther. One brought me a card and two 70% Cacao chocolate candy bars - oh so good. Two other dear neighbors brought cards, cake, ice cream and birthday wishes to help me celebrate late yesterday when the day was winding down. Their wonderful efforts gave me a lift for the rest of the day and night..
Yes, I had a truly marvelous birthday this year, thanks to others who are so very wonderful to me. I am so glad I have all of these friends. They are my family, now.
