Since I'm at school I had to choose a photo from what is stored on my work computer, so this is a picture from my birthday a couple of years ago eating cake with Todd. Todd is graduating this year and I am going to miss him more than I can say. As one of my EAs said to Todd once "you light up my life!"
There is somethings so wonderful about a person you can lavish all of your affection on and who just soaks it all up and freely gives it back.
Just try it. One day, when you're feeling blue, give a friend or a family member a big hug, you'll feel better for it. Not a day goes by that I don't give Todd several hugs (and a few kisses but shhhhhh, don't tell anybody)!!
It's still only 7:20am but already two people have bought me coffee, I had a "Happy Birthday" note on my mirror this morning and on my blackboard at school. I found a cute card from Kazi, Michael and Dane (Michael's son) on the kitchen counter.
How wonderful to be able to give and receive love!
