I recently celebrated my 60th birthday on the 31st of January. My daughter Nicky was visiting from New Zealand and she and Sabrina planned a party for me. I received many cards and encouraging e emails from many people. We invited some friends around to celebrate my birthday. As I was cutting my cake and everyone was singing “happy birthday”, my son Aaron walked through the front door totally unannounced. He had flown from Tauranga to surprise me on my birthday.
I was blown away and became very emotional. Our whole family was at my birthday. What a surprise. I t was one of the best days of my life. It was just awesome. We had the next week together as a family and when out and did things together shopping meals etc- it was just great. Because our family live on opposite sides of the world we don’t see each other very often so when we get together we make the most of it.
