Celebrate the Small Things 21-9-18
This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
What am I celebrating this week?
It's my father-in-law's 90th birthday today. That's one of those birthdays you actually want to celebrate. Unfortunately, his wife, my partner's mother and my kids' grandmother, passed away today. So it isn't the happy birthday we were hoping for. She was 87, so it wasn't entirely unexpected, but it's still sad.
But because my mother-in-law (or outlaw as we always called her because my partner and I aren't married) was fretting about the 90th birthday party we had planned right up until yesterday, my son and I are going to make a birthday cake which we will take when we go and have dinner with the family tomorrow night. Sometimes you just need to mark the milestones, even if you don't make a big fuss over them.
So this week I'm choosing to celebrate life. When you think about it, a human lifetime, even when it stretches toward a century, isn't that long. So we have to make the most of it.
