And, you know what else?
Yep, I'm pretty darned scared of that.
*checks email reluctantly to see if their is news...
(there is NOT).*
I'm most afraid of my children being hurt or worse.
Because, seriously, that scares the bejeezus out of me. And it just happened here yesterday, around the corner from me. A beautiful, quiet, good, 17-yr old girl from our school district who lost control of her car.
So, all you kids out there, listen to your parents and be careful. And remember to take your time. And know when I'm blowing out those candles, I'm making a wish for all of you.
Because, 46? Nope, not scared at all.
And all those candles just mean that many more good wishes.
I've said one for you now.
Now, somebody pass me more cake.
