It is a privilege to have my birthday on the day before my son's. He even took me out on a date to the cultural show tonight! We came home early, though, when we found out that staying up past bedtime and drinking soda (a very rare treat) do not work well for his tummy. We both had to have a change of clothes because of a little throw-up incident. But we enjoyed the Ugandan singing and dancing!
Birthdays usually involve lots of family and old friends. There were a few sniffles here and there (only by me) as we opened up e-cards from far-away grandparents, but mostly laughs and smiles.
Even though we missed seeing our dear family and old friends on our 2013 birthdays, we really did have a very nice weekend. God has brought some new friends into our lives (through Freedom Church), who we cherish already! John, Lisa, and Caleb are so sweet and a lot of fun! We have enjoyed getting to know them in the past few weeks, and had a great time celebrating with them this year!
