Today is my 50th birthday.

This is the view that I had from my car as I received the most amazing gift this morning…

Over the past three months, Tony painstakingly collected voice recordings–songs, stories, salutations–from 84 of my friends and put them on 2 CDs.  For two hours, we sat in the car at Miller Park and listened to friends and family wish me well and share a piece of themselves with me.  It was the most beautiful experience I have had and the best birthday gift.  All of my family participated, as well as close friends, acquaintances, and many people who have touched my life.  As I told Tony, I felt lifted.

It was truly a beautiful moment, wonderfully emotional,  and I will never forget it.

Thank you Tony.  Thank you.
