My husband and my best friend's husband pulled it off...with a little help from our kids and our friends! Yesterday I turned 50 and on Saturday night I was given a surprise party that also included my best friend Laura. I have known Laura for 35 years now and I can't imagine a better best friend.
The party was fantastic and filled with the usual...jokes about memory loss, hot flashes, sagging body parts, poor eyesight, etc.... but all in good fun. I received some lovely gifts, the food was fantastic and the night flew by.
Reflecting on the party the next day I came away with this:
50 is just a number (most days I still feel like I am in my 30's)
Money cannot buy happiness
The safest place in the world to me is in my husband's arms
I would give all I have to protect my daughter and husband from harm
Good health of mind, body, and spirit is priceless
A blessing is the fact that this year I celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday with my wonderful parents by my side. (My Mom, 86 and my Dad 85 both did jello shots at my party!)
