We sat there listenig to the thunder and rain outside that hit our region yesterday night and waited for midnight to toast. The lighning just hit the church next to our living room, which made a huge sound. So we couldn’t rely on the bells of the church to hear when midnight was there. At 23:59 Conrad opend the bottle of champagne that I wanted to have for my birthday and right at 0:00 the telephone rang. My mother called and at the same time my father wrote a message. I received so many beautiful message for my 30th birthday and I am so grateful for every message, whats app, facebook comment, email, sended gift or mail, personal visit. My 30th birthday was just as relaxed and special as I imagined it just because of all your messages – thank you all. I feel very very loved and blessed today !
