birthday weekend

September just happens to the be the birthday month of three very important people in our family. My dad's is the 19th, my sister's is the 24th and mine is the 27th. We were planning on going down to the farm next weekend but our plans this weekend were cancelled.

Cowboy suggested that since both of my sisters would be out of town next weekend, we should go down this weekend. I called all the siblings and rallied the troops. We took Mom and Dad out for dinner and then back to the house for cake and ice cream.

He is very thoughtful about being with my parents and doing things for them. He commented that there were millions of things he wishes he could have done for his parents or said to his parents. Since, they have passed away he doesn't have the chance to say what he wants to them or do what he wants for them so he is very open to doing those things for mine. My parents love him and I love him even more for being so thoughtful about them.

That is very thoughtful and caring of him. I'm glad he has your family to "do for," because so many don't find a second family and find a loving outlet .... and inlet, too.

It forgives a lot of other junk, doesn't it?

Happy Birthday to them as well as you. Any weekend where there is cake can only be a good weekend.

You are a lucky girl to have a guy that thinks about your family as well as spend time with them. Just remember that the next time you are mad or frustrated w/Cowboy, Or you can give me a call & I'll remind you.
Glad to see you this weekend, sorry I didn't get to spend more time with you.
