Another Birthday Gone

Well, I survived Josh's 20th Birthday.  I want to thank all of you for your hugs and birthday wishes for me and Josh.  It means the world to me that you remember my Josh even when family members (in laws) do not remember or do not acknowledge.  I took yesterday off and spent it with my two brothers who I love dearly but they are grown babies that love to drink to much.  Which I just do not understand.  Yesterday they did great.  We visited Josh, had lunch, visited my granny and had a great day.  Last night 16 people gathered in Josh's favorite resturant for dinner and celebrated his day.  Came home and crashed.  Today in the slumps.  My brothers hung out today and cooked dinner for us.  But, they were fussing.  Drinking.  One drunk.  Etc. Etc.  One didn't eat.  I just don't understand it.  They both were raised in a home of drinking and fighting.  Why do they do this???????  But anyway they are grown.  Can't worry about them.  Love you all.

Sounds like the celebration honoring Josh at his favorite restaurant was a big success. That sure shows lots of love for Josh & you. You are right about the brothers...they are grown, you can\'t worry about them...if you can help it. Hugs, Kim

I am glad you made it-gee, too bad the relatives have to make it harder!! Seems to be a recurring theme among us Moms. I love it when no one calls because they don\'t want to make me feel bad-like I feel so great-but I think no one really knows what to say or do so they just ignore-less painful for them. But you know we were all thinking about you and loving you and John and sending much love to Josh on his birthday. Love, Sandy
