Something was up when I got to work. I just didn't know what exactly.

Today is my 36th birthday and my coworkers at my university job threw me a party! There was pizza and snacks and pop and delicious cake…chocolate cake!!

The wall in the back office at work.

I was overwhelmed by their generosity and kindness--all for me.

Even my student workers brought stuff in, saying I'm always bringing stuff in for them.

My face hurt from smiling so much.

Today made me feel like I was someone SPECIAL and I haven't felt like that in the longest time.

Thank God for my coworkers. I am truly blessed to have them.
