I AM SPOILED ROTTEN!
Today is my 44th birthday and God, my family, and friends have spoiled me rotten! Here's a quick rundown of my over-flowing-with-blessings day:
*Yesterday's cold dampness was replaced with good-morning sunshine and birthday kisses
*Five younger kids at a church friend's house for playtime so the teenage girls and I could have a day away
*Delicious buffet lunch at The Thai House with A, B, and the Hunky Hubby
*Shopping with the big girls and bought for myself the book FAITH LIKE POTATOES
*Greetings via phone calls
*Scores of thoughtful birthday greetings and prayers at Facebook and the Five in a Row Forum
*Supper at Cracker Barrel with the whole family thanks to a gift card from another church pal
*HUGE, butter cream, birthday cupcakes
*LOTS of gifts...a fun pop-up book, three pairs of cute socks, Burt's Bees lip balm, sparkly silver and black flip-flops, Hello Kitty water bottle, LITTLE WOMEN DVD (because the girls find Christian Bale to be so dreamy in it), money from relatives, and a drop-proof digital camera to replace the one killed by a name-withheld-to-protect-the-not-so-innocent member of our family.
Thanks to all of you who were a part in making this such a fabulous birthday! I was truly, truly blessed. God is so good to me and y'all are a part of that goodness.
