Please Send Cupcakes

Here’s the thing about grief: one minute you’re drowning in it, thinking you’ll never resurface. And the next, up you’ve popped and you’re feeing the sun on your face.

My moods seem to change on a dime.

Right now, the work day is nearly through and it’s my birthday.

Okay, technically it’s not until Monday. But it’s a big one.

So I believe it’s appropriate to begin the celebration now, and continue at least through Memorial weekend.

Just FYI, I am a big fan of cupcakes.

Way better than almond butter and bilberry jam sandwiches.

    Happy 0-Celebration (old woman like me cannot remember the number before that, does it matter?)
    Right you are to focus on what is still there – your life. And yay for you having sun shining and feeling that.
    And if by chance a thought of your beloved ones creeps in (like they do in this comment) – hey, you would not want to celebrate without guests? They will hopefully behave like guests and accept that this celebration is about you. You have only well-mannered guests, don’t you?

    Now off I go to look for cupcake recipes.

  9. After my mother passed away I went really odd and needed something to do so I baked about 50 cupcakes and an ill fated meringue. My dream of opening up a patisserie was short lived when my partner pointed out the very apparent egg shells in the middle of said cupcakes. Happy birthday!
