My Special Day!!!


Well today Is my birthday! Yippee for me!!!

My family planned a surprise birthday party for me this past Saturday! What a blessing it was having my family here to celebrate. A few family members were not able to attend because of work...they were missed greatly, but certainly there is spirit!

The kids planned a brunch with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, fruit salad, and lots of assorted pastries! It was delicious! A few bouquets of fresh flowers were given to me...they are just beautiful! Hubby took me out in the morning and we walked around the "Old Town" area at all the antiques, and perused the Farmer's Market as well. The entire day was such a blessing to me...and so greatly appreciated!!!

Today I've blessed the home as I always do on Monday mornings, have a pan of Lasagna in the oven bubbling away. All that is needing to be done is to make a tossed salad and dinner is done. A friend from the prayer group at church came to see me today and brought a lovely potted Tiger Lily! So thoughtful.....I am extremely thankful for the relationships that the Lord has given me....my heart is so full!

Tonight will be spent with the family and enjoying the remainder of my birthday cake and taking in this beautiful season of color!

Abundant blessings to you and your house......
