I’ve always been # 33.

You know like # 33 in the program.

It is a number that I’ve held onto since my sophomore year of high school.

I’ve used the #33 for various things like access codes or log in accounts all my life.

As of yesterday it became official.

I am 33.

I teased my co-workers and scared my husband with the thought of me wearing my letterman’s jacket to work with the big volleyball patch with# 33 on it. Don’t worry I didn’t do it, but it’s really too bad the jacket comes out only once a year. (That is a separate post altogether).

I celebrated my birthday with sneaky gifts from my husband, like a trip to the spa.

Hugs and kisses from my kiddos.

An early morning call from the one and only person who carried me for 9 loving months in her womb.

I had flowers delivered to my work by SURPRISE SURPRISE my brother. Whew he does love me and remembered he has a little sister living up north.

Via phone I had an entire Beaver Lake Middle School 6th grade P.E. class wish me a happy birthday thanks to Coach B, aka my dad.

I heard from many of my friends and even an old coach from junior high.

I had cake.

I blew out candles.

I ate off a red plate.

And most important I went to bed feeling full of love and joy that I am just another year older and of course wiser!

Cheers to me and cheers to the # 33!

To honor you and the "Holy Number" 33, I have retired that number from Beaver Lake Volleyball for all time. No girl will ever wear the "Holy Number" ever again, the number 33 will forever be placed away, to honor the young lady (you) that had worn it with pride so many years ago. the intensity and commitment would never be match, the zeal and zest for the protection of "the floor".......
33 played the game. you can tell she played, just by looking into her eye's.
Happy Birthday 33, keep playing the game of life with all you have. I know you will.

Oh geez, I don't know which is making me more emotional, your post or your dad's comment.

Happy Birthday to my best.
