My husband got me again!
His birthday is tomorrow. On the day before his birthday and every year since our first anniversary 27 years ago he has asked me, "Do you know what today is?... Mary Anne Hegglestein's birthday". The first year, I replied, "Mary Anne HeggleWHO?" And it's history from there. Gets me every year.
Mary Anne Hegglestein was a little girl whom he went to school with until 4th grade at which time her family moved away. Her birthday was the day before Sunny's and, of course, they celebrated at school together. They've never been in contact since.
The funny thing is that I truly forget about it until the morning of April 8th when Sunny asks this age-old question. I haven't even thought of putting it on the calendar. I guess I subconsciously want to keep it that way, just another fun and loving interaction between Sunny and I.
So, Happy Birthday Mary Anne Hegglestein! (I don't even know if I'm spelling your name right) Wherever you are, we hope you are alive and well, and wish you a day filled with the presence of God! And know that you are thought of every year!
If anyone would enjoy playing along by wishing Mary Anne Hegglestein a happy birthday on his blog, Kingdom Living Mysteries, I know Sunny would get a kick out of it!
Happy, happy day my blogging buddies!
It's All MARY ANNE HEGGLESTEIN Good!
