Alone, but not.

Birthdays can be ignored during a work day, but having one on a weekend day is sort of hard to get away from. This is the first weekend birthday for me since my brother died and I thought I'd be sort of sad today. I knew I'd be alone today and I thought I'd have to fight not to hold a pity party.

But ...

The extent of all of your good wishes and caring has stayed with me all day long and I wasn't sad, and I never felt lonely, not for one moment.

My strongest wish as I blow out the virtual candles on my cake is that each one of you is given back seven times seven the kindness you've given me.
