Birthday Blessings

Here are the pictures I promised~

Absolutely gorgeous basket put together by the sweet ladies from church.  Yep, I cried like a baby!

Aren't these flowers unreal?  This brilliant blue is so unique.  These are from my 3 boys.

What's not to LOVE about this! My sweet friend, Carissa, shares my love of old books & couldn't have given me any nicer surprise!

Jody, I couldn't have said it better myself.  Friends make the hard times easier ... & the good time even better.
I LOVE this card!  Notice the fruits growing on the tree ... & the cute lil' kindness cart?  Paula, you are the sweet one;)

James surprised me with an overnight stay at Sybaris.  We had 2 referral gift cards, a regular coupon, & a birthday coupon which added up to a BIG discount!  We normally don't do much for Valentine's Day, so this wonderful get-away was sort of a pre-Valentine's celebration to boot.

I'd have to say, seeing how I wasn't jumping up & down about my birthday 
{this is my official '39 & holding' birthday},
all these bountiful blessings sure did soften the blow.

~Live well, laugh often, love much.

~The greatest gift I ever received came from God – my Family

~Friendship sweetens the cares of life

      My momma had me when she was 39 ...a 10 & 12 year gap between my brother & sister. My hubs & sons think it would be spectacular if God blessed us with a little girlie, but my, oh my, what a change in life that would be! LOL.
