45 years ago today I fooled them all and came into this world 3 weeks early! The great thing about having an April Fools day Birthday is it's hard for your hubby to forget! Rarely does anyone forget my Birthday it's payback for all the bad jokes I've endured over the years.
Mom and dad sent this cute card. By the language on it I'd say dad picked out this one. He's a real prankster all year long.
My two boys whipped up a quick party.
My boys are crafty like me, and tend to give homemade gifts just like when they were little. This year was no different. Trever, my youngest, made me this lovely ring.
Can you believe he wrapped the wire with a smaller wire, I thought it was a spring. I love it, so unique. I found out today that its not one that I can wear in the studio it was getting caught on everything.
We all share a love for music, all music. Even though I tend to listen to country and older rock also enjoy the newer music.
So my oldest son will keep me up to date with new bands. He burned a CD for me as a gift. It's a new group called Honey Honey. I thanked him stuck it in my purse and didn't open it until last night. Great band with a bluegrass sound.
The inside of the CD made me cry. Normally I don't like to talk about negative things here in blogland. But for this to make sense to you I'll give you a quick trip into my past. My ex had a substance abuse problem, life was hard for 13 years. My kids endured a lot of things that kids shouldn't. I tried as hard as I could to make things normal. Until the last 2 years of my marriage I had a nervous breakdown and started down the road of substance abuse also. When the marriage was over, I struggled for a couple of years recovering. Working in a factory 10-12 hrs a day, 6-7 days a week. No child support.
This made all those struggles worth it.
