Last night my niece and family took me out for a celebratory dinner as I have a special birthday coming up next week. We ate at a lovely restaurant, Seasons 52, where I had a scrumptious meal of scallops and fresh asparagus.
To honor my special birthday, my niece put together a beautiful red scrap book filled with messages from family and friends, along with some decorated pages.
I was overwhelmed with the kind words from those near and far. Each page brought a smile to my face – and heart! Becky thoughtfully left some empty pages where I can add birthday cards I receive next week. The last page, #75, gives away my age.
I sat in church today, during the silent prayer, thanking God for the many, many blessings in my life – especially family and friends. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people that touch my life. The messages I received are all so thoughtful, kind and loving. Thank you, thank you, thank you………
(Of course I also said a sincere Thank You for my new long-arm machine!!!)
