Birthday Thanks

I love homemade cards from my kids. Get a load of this one from J, my youngest-- my 9 year old, cutie-pie, nut. She thinks she is so funny!

My sweet husband knows how much I love to eat out (and eat bacon) and so he took the morning off and fed me bacon and eggs! And then we had a delightful hour browsing through the bookstore (scoping out the books we want to order from the library next).

My oldest son sent me a text message during the day telling me Happy Birthday and that he loved me. It isn't exactly a cute little homemade card on construction paper but he is 18 next month and I will take every bit of that I can get!

M, my second oldest, has always had the ability to communicate love and he didn't fail me now that I am 39.

And I love mani's and pedi's. J took care of my hands and C took the feet, complete with a lovely massage and clumpy nailpolish. It was perfect!

I also love steak, chocolate cake, York Peppermint Patties, and presents...they also made an appearance at my big party.

I feel so very loved! Thank you, dear God, for my wonderful family!

LOVED J's card.

I really wanted to tell you that yesterday as well, but I knew my role should be Supportive and Loving friend. Not Smart Aleck who's not that far behind you!

So glad that your day was a good one!

Sounds like a great day!! Wow. With all that special treatment, I wouldn't blame you if you decided to keep celebrating for a few more days.
