We have amazing friends who keep showing up--via FaceTime, text, photo collage, or what have you, they show up. They are there when it counts--big moments or little moments. God has truly surrounded us with incredible people.
I feel so incredible humbled and grateful for everyone who had a hand in this whole thing. So many friends and so much life was represented last night--from birth (my own) to Happy House, elementary school, high school, college, Heart Group, Revolution, and beyond, friends from all ages and stages were represented. Not many people have that. I don't go a day without thinking of how grateful I am to be immersed in my own support system from so many facets of life.
Probably the most excited party-goer of all was the smallest one.
If he told me happy birthday once, he told me a thousand times. He was so thrilled to be part of the party, in on the surprise, and be part of the celebration. That boy melts my heart.
