Pre-Birthday Celebration at Work

Yesterday, people at my full-time job surprised me with gifts, cards, and a pre-birthday celebration complete with gluten, dairy, and soy free cupcakes. I was verklempt at the kind gestures – they truly made the day before my birthday special. Even the people at my part-time library job gave me hugs and well-wishes.



Since today is my actual birthday, I will try to post photos of the celebration today. For my American friends and followers, I hope you have a great Independence Day!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie, and happy 4th of July birthday to you, dear friend!

    Reading about the kind gestures of your co-workers has me all verklempt, too. When you treat people with kindness, more often than not it comes back to you. The whole world could learn a lesson from you and your circle of friends. Did you eat any of those gluten, dairy, and soy free cupcakes? How did they taste?

    I wish you a very happy birthday and you and your family a wonderful Independence Day celebration, dear friend JM!
