A Special Day

November 30th has turned out to be a pretty special day.

It's Pink Ninja's 3rd Birthday today and Oddy's 10th wedding anniversary. Pop on over to both places - a couple of beautiful posts and there is nothing like a little love to start your day....

But it's also a pretty special day in Tammi's World. More years ago than I care to admit to, I became the daughter of two of the most special people in the world. And I mean that. No little girl could have asked (or dreamt) of a better home.

Growing up we always made a big deal about our adoption birthdays. Actually more than what we did for our regular day. Mama and Daddy handled everything about our adoptions with class and wisdom. There are no issues in our family about feeling deserted or unwanted. We KNOW we are loved. And we always have.

Last night I called Mama to get the candy recipes I posted below. I can't seem to find them anywhere and, well, it makes her happy when I ask for her help.

As we were finishing up on the phone Mama gets a little weepy. She started talking about what a good daughter I am and that tomorrow (today now) she would say and extra EXTRA thank you prayer for me.

She remembered.

That in itself is the best A-Day birthday present I could ask for. Mama remembered.

So November 30th is a very special day. It's the day I got my family. Thank you Mama.

Happy A-day. I hope the snow holds off until you're back home tonight - that would be a good present I think.
