My sister recently had some of our home videos put on DVD, one of them being my first birthday, and on there we realized that my grandparents had given me a tiny little gold ring, nothing fancy, just a simple band. In the background, you can hear my Papa describing how he picked it out and had wanted it to have my birthstone on it but they didn't have that. I have yet to watch that video, but I can't wait to! It means so much, especially since Papa has recently gone to Heaven and we temporarily have to live without him. He was such a special man and we miss him so much. It is an emotional birthday knowing that I won't be seeing him. Last year, he was very sick in the hospital, having just had an entire lung removed, and still managed to sing me Happy Birthday! It was so very sweet and I will forever remember that! Anyways, that was a very special gift for my Grandma to have found that ring for me and given back to me. I now have it on looped through my cross necklace, and it's a constant reminder of my Papa and what an amazing man he was!
Thank you to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday and to those who are a part of my life everyday! =)
