My dear dear Alison, I am smiling all over for having discovered this loving birthday post of yours. I am in Belgium with my grandsons and I don't have the opportunity to come on Pip; except peeking in for a moment as I did now; but I will be back soon
THANK YOU FROM MY HEART for your loving wishes and precious words. You are special to me too, you are in my heartprayers in this difficult moment in your life. Yes you anticipated the celebration, the day is Feb. 21st; but I am so happy that you thought of me and I will do as you said ::: stretching the celebrations.
All my love to you. Margherita
