Birthday Squared

with 2 comments

In a classic demonstration of Cyndie’s gift of thinking about others, the planned driveway celebration of her birthday this year was secretly morphed into a surprise celebration of her brother, Steve’s 60th birthday which occurred in April when the family was unable to gather. Cyndie collected thoughts about Steve from all the family and a list was made of the top sixty things we love about the new sexagenarian.

Each thought was numbered and randomly distributed to those present so we could read them aloud to the almost safely distanced tribe.

It was a lovely display of family love on a fabulously lovely June evening that became a birthday squared celebration.

  1. Yes, indeed: I started the day writing a happy birthday to my sister and later Stephanie reminded me that it was Cyndie’s birthday, too, yes, my other sister’s birthday. We really share some special days, though, so far apart. Happy many returns to our ever so dear Cyndie!
