Monday Morning Boost: A Birthday Thank You

Monday Morning Boost: A Birthday Thank You

I know I look old and grumpy in this photo… but celebrating my birthday neither made me feel old or grumpy! I love celebrating my birthday and each one seems to turn out better than the previous!

Turning 58 this past Friday has been an incredible blessing. For the first time, we had all three of our grandkiddos together, and our two daughters joined us as well. We have enjoyed several days filled with joy, laughter, and the kind of love that warms me from the inside out and fills my soul. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate.

Beyond the delightful chaos of having the grandkiddos and our daughters around, I was deeply touched by the outpouring of love from many family members and friends. Each message, text, call, and Facebook post was a gift in itself, making me feel cherished and appreciated.

As I read through each of the hundreds of birthday wishes, I felt the incredible connection we share. Your kind words, thoughtful messages, and heartfelt sentiments were like rays of sunshine on an already bright day. Many of you shared your well wishes for the year ahead, some of you shared your love and light, and a few of you even shared specific memories.

Every single message resonated with me and added to the joy of my day.

I have been greatly blessed by the beautiful words of those who shared their hope, who shined their light, and who expressed the echoes of their heart. Your words were more than just messages as they were reminders of the connecting bonds we share, the memories we’ve made, and the support we offer each other. I am grateful for each of you who strive to keep these connections alive and thriving.

Thank you for sharing your birthday wishes, for taking the time to reach out, for sharing a piece of your heart. Each made my day a little brighter. Your presence in my life is a treasure, and I am immensely grateful for each of you.


Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.

I Love You, friend!

Les Patterson
