Today is Corky Eden’s birthday. We celebrated at our house last night with a birthday dinner.
Steve and I planned the surprise event a few weeks ago. We cleared the date and the details with her husband Mike first and got his buy in and participation.
You can see by the tilt of her head and the smile on her face, Corky was surprised when she walked though the door. She thought only she and Mike and Steve and I were going out for dinner. She didn’t know we were having a party.
Corky liked the home made angel food birthday cake. It tastes good and is practically calorie free.
While we were having cake and coffee, I realized that Steve and I probably had more fun than Corky. She was the birthday girl, but she only got to have fun for a few hours. Steve and I got to have fun planning a preparing for a much longer time. Doing something nice for someone really does give a lot of payback. Thanks Corky.
Happy Happy Birthday Corky. Have a great day.
