Low and behold my father TEXT messaged me yesterday..."happy birthday I love and miss you Dad" ...I just responded with "thanks". Birthday wishes via text from my dad, kind of lame, but its a start I suppose. I almost wish he hadn't done anything, as I expected, because I found myself rather sad the rest of the day. I really miss my mom. I eventually went and bought myself some flowers and made myself a cake :) Maddie and I had fun baking together and she insisted on singing happy birthday about a hundred times and made me wear a crown.

My best friend Angie took me out to lunch an presented me with a Tiffany's bracelet! What a gal.

All in all, a great day.

Dear Mags,

I am so glad that Maddie and your friend helped to celebrate your day. Your cake-baking together, the singing and tiara are precious memories for you to cherish! There is no gift quite like that unconditional love that we can give and receive with our kids...
God bless you!

Happy Birthday.
You should be happy that he sent you a text. At least he was thinking about you. Some people just don't have the capacity to be very caring....this may be the best that he can do for you.
I am glad you had a nice lunch w/ a friend and making a cake w/ Maddie...what a great memory maker. You should start a tradition with her...making a cake for each of your bdays.
have a nice, safe weekend.

Happy Birthday, girl!
Sweet that your precious girl insisted on the crown!

Take the "glass half full" approach with your Dad. He could ahve let the day pass with no communication... at least he acknowledged it.

I hope you and your daughter have a GREAT 4th of July weekend!!

Ohhhh Happy Belated Birthday!! I'm sorry I didn't check in yesterday.

while the text is a lame way to wish someone a happy birthday I guess it's better than nothing? Who knows. But I'm sorry you were upset. Sounds like you still had a great day with Maddie and good friends.

Here's a a fantastic birthday year!
