The thought that went into those presents is priceless.
I'm so proud of my son (he's 13)
He's aware of some of my struggles and I know how proud he is off me.
So yeah today is a beautiful day, I have no pressure in the thought of going out getting smashed, I couldn't think of a worse thing to happen right now.
Tonight I have circuits and after my son and me are going to have a Chinese together to share my day.
I wouldn't want to be with anyone else.
My friends are going to come out with me at a later date to celebrate sober with a meal.
It sure does get better, it sure is a better way to live.
Much love as always
Forever young Doris 😜😝😜😝🙏💖
I hope it's an amazing day. Happy Birthday

It sure sounds like it's been a fabulous birthday, Doris!
What lovely gifts from your son.
