The Birthday rush again

Birthday cards from my son Christopher's students in Korea
came in a package for me and my husband 
in 2008. 
One of the happiest packages 
I ever opened.
I was just realizing that these children
would now be 21! They were six at the time.

This post from last year says it all perfectly about this time in
the year in our family.

"In our family there are five birthdays in less than a month.
Add to that a first wedding anniversary this month, and whew --
it's easy to feel like you better keep your dancing shoes on!

Thinking about all of these birthdays -- if my mother were
alive it would be six, and hers would be tomorrow, I went
hunting through my blogs for birthday references, and
found these sweet birthday cards that came to me and Steven
from Korea the year that Megan and Christopher worked in Seoul
teaching English to children after the children's regular classes
for the day were done.

These cards were created by 6 year olds.  And receiving them
 made my birthday special indeed that year.

Have a loving your life day -- and keep your dancing shoes on!
