Sharing a little positiveness

Yesterday was my elder daughter's 60th birthday. Her daughter felt it was a special one and with the Covid quarantining wanted to do something about it. She wanted to make a video of her mother's friends wishing her a Happy Birthday. I don't know how she pulled it off, but she managed to get responses from all over the country of friends old and new (my daughter probably has more than the average person).The video ran almost 1/2 hour. Some were simple birthday greetings and others went all out with skits. I saw people I hadn't seen since the 70's. On top of that, her daughter added a live recording of what my daughter's response was when she saw it. It was one of the most heartwarming videos I've ever watched. If that were not enough, later in the day, there was a long line parade of honking cars up her block with Happy Birthday signs. It seems all her more current fairly local friends were in it. A few passed glasses of wine and got out of their cars (keeping social distance and/or wearing masks). The whole day was unforgettable!
