I do not know what to say












Just when I thought that it was not possible to feel more celebrated, my mind was blown away. Last night... At a surprise early-birthday gathering planned by my best friend and lifelong companion, Scott Arthur... with the generous help of Lynette, Henry, Becky, and countless others...where loved ones from all around Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky communicated their love by their presence.

When I type, "I do not know what to say" - I really don't. And the normal Tricia would follow this "I'm without words" comment with a 5 paragraph description using lots of the very words I claimed to be "without."

But I'm really speechless. All that seems to be reeling through my head since last night (aside from processing the different contexts where the knowledge of this event was sneakily kept from me - smooth lying friends [and relatives - AUNT LISA] I have!!!), is "THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU."

So hopefully, the pictures will fill in the other blanks and tell it all. The look on my face might be an indicator of how successful the "surprise" efforts were. Did I mention, "THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU????"

David and I were sorry we couldn't be there too. Your husband was quite the party planner! :) Glad you have a nice time, and good luck with the move this week.
