surprise birthday party at the yoga studio.
I have the BEST people in my life!
I celebrated a birthday this past week and realized that Perfect Moments can connect and last ALL day long!
On my special day, I woke up thinking that I would enjoy the morning yoga class, but soon found out that the yoga instructor that morning had a work conflict and would not be able to be to the studio on time. Instead of taking yoga, I would be teaching it.
Know that I LOVE to teach yoga, but on my birthday, I wanted the luxury of being in my own space, practicing yoga.
Literally five minutes before class was to begin, the yoga instructor I was subbing for walked in the door and said she got back early and could still teach. Hallelujah!
During Final Savasana, I tears came to my eyes as I realized how very blessed I am and feeling grateful for my health, my family, my friends, etc. Another Perfect Moment indeed!
I left the class on this emotional high to find a group of my friends gathering at the studio to wish me a Happy Birthday! My dear friends, Loralie and Tess, had invited my friends, brought the coffee, delicious coffee cake, cards, presents, a balloon, etc. and surprised me. WOW! I was very touched. More Perfect Moments!
I had two great appointments that afternoon and then got to enjoy a wonderful stretching class called Deep Openings with my hubby. And our three sons helped each other (yes, you read that correctly -- our teenage sons worked together), so that Tom and I could go out to dinner to celebrate. Several more Perfect Moments!
Throughout the day I received several really nice phone calls and voice messages, and my Facebook was full of wonderful birthday greetings. My sister left this one that was SO very touching:
As I laid in bed that night, I was still smiling. I have so many great people in my life. I am very blessed.
One word: Perfect!
