Dianne Powell expresses why she celebrates her Birthday the way she does
I was one of the lucky ones. My parents believed that birthdays were very, very special. “It’s your birthday…what do you want to do?” or “Who do you want to see?” or “What do you want for your birthday dinner?”
Well, after some decades of celebrating my “special” day doing lots of “special” things with very “special” family and friends and eating very “special” meals…I decided to expand upon that tradition. So….for a number of years, I have chosen to pick special folks to cook homemade specialties for very special people through RCS (Religious Community Services).
It’s become a birthday tradition and this year was no exception. Dinner was served with laughter, smiles and with prayer for those who made the food and those who would enjoy it.
The menu included:
BBQ Beef Brisket, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Green Bean Casserole, Rolls/Butter and Brownies/Red Velvet Cake/Ice Cream for dessert. And, oh yes, a basket with fresh fruit and small bags with walnut and almonds for later. Hard to tell…who enjoyed it more…
It’s easy…call the RCS Volunteer Coordinator and ask for a date. Our neighborhood group is planning to do this at least once every month. It doesn’t have to be your birthday…guess you could say that it’s a true “win/win” situation for all.
A special day, indeed.
“Happy Birthday To Me…la, la, la.”
