- The obvious one - I'm still here!
- I think I'm a little wiser
- People call me "Sweetie" and "Honey"
- The importance of birthdays seems less
My children called and that is always wonderful. My friends sent sweet and beautiful cards. Facebook added a new dimension with birthday wishes from friends and family - far and wide - some very unexpected. Friends dropped by and brought gifts - so thoughtful and made me feel very special.
I received these at work...
Aren't they gorgeous? The roses smelled
heavenly. The the sunflowers' color is so
vivid it almost "hurts" to look at them.
I also received a first....
A cake! Came by FedEx...thank you Jill!
We haven't tasted it yet, but it looks scrumptious, and the box it is in - delightful!
This next gift expresses perfectly my last point in how birthdays change with age.
Yes, it's Diet Dr. Pepper. After asking and asking, "what do you want for your birthday?" and hearing,
"Nothing"...this is what my sweet husband brought to me, as I lay in bed sick. Diet Dr. Pepper is my
major vice, so much so, that I switched to Diet Dr. Thunder (Wal-Mart's brand) because I felt guilty.
LOL! I couldn't stop smiling when I saw this box. Clever man.
From my brother, Kevin. Oh how I love him and
the new relationship we have in Jesus Christ!
Thank you, Family and Friends - for enriching my life!
