The Best Birthday

By Leslie

I had the best birthday this past February 22nd! Three major reasons:

  • My husband, children and friends – especially my husband.
  • I felt okay. That is special as my neurologic disease painfully progresses. This was a wonderful respite.
  • And – snow in Tucson! I actually laughed out loud as we ate breakfast and watched the big fat snowflakes falling. Temporarily, oh so temporarily, the roofs and foliage were covered in snow. What a glorious site for a long-time Tucsonan. By evening, all, or virtually all, traces of snow were gone.

But – the following morning the Catalinas were completely clothed in white – and they could be viewed from our Arizona room windows! The sight was almost breathtaking.

I’ve lived in snowy climes – Boston, New York, Chicago, Maryland, St Louis – but it was a rare day that snow brought so much joy — into my life, and I know so many others.
