    It's my birthday today, and as I mentioned in a previous thread, it's the first year John hasn't been able to buy me a present or card. The family came down on Saturday and took us out for a meal (lovely), but John was upset that they were giving me cards and presents, and he hadn't got anything.

    Anyway, I sat down with him at my computer yesterday and he chose a photograph from our files and I made a card. With great difficulty he managed to copy his name as a signature. Then I told him he had to give it to me this morning and say 'Happy birthday, Darling'

    This morning, he remembered the card (but not where he had put it!) When he gave me it I said, 'What are you going to say to me?' He looked puzzled for a minute, then just as I was going to prompt him, he said 'You're nice'

    That's the best birthday present ever!!!

    Happy Birthday Hazel. It really is true `it`s the thought that counts` What a genuine statement your husband made. Savour it.

    Thanks everyone for the good wishes. I've had a lovely day, and I wasn't looking forward to it at all. I had our Crossroads lady this afternoon, and she asked about the cards. So while I was out she took John out to buy me a box of chocolates as a surprise. People are so kind.

    But as you all said, the best present was what John said this morning, and his efforts to sign the card. I've had such a warm feeling today, and I shall treasure the memory. Who knows what next year will bring.

    I feel good.
