My Birthday!

Today is my birthday and what a great celebration! God is so good to me. Here’s how it went …

  • My sweet husband called at 6:30 a.m. to be the first one to wish me “Happy Birthday” and sing to his “precious wife". My heart leaps at the thought of that sweet man that God has gifted me with!
  • Several of my dear, sweet, best friends emailed, called and texted me “Happy Birthday!”
  • Daughters collaborated making me breakfast in bed and then did a trampoline routine to the tune of … you guessed it … “Happy Birthday!”
  • My sister, my parents and my mother-in-love called and sang, “Happy Birthday!”
  • We went to a pumpkin patch that the girls have now outgrown (sad), but while we were there, one of my best girlfriends and her family found us and came to hug and hang. I love fall and I love pumpkin patches and I am so looking forward to the one at Mainstay Farm this weekend.
  • We had my favorite ice cream from Chik-Fil-A … I know, I am strange, but it’s yummy to me!
  • When we got home … a lovely bouquet with an even more precious card from sweetest husband in the world … can’t wait until that man gets home!
  • All day the girls said, “No mommy, you pick, it’s your birthday!” and wrote me sweet love notes.
  • Oh, and, the day before, I was blessed tremendously at my prayer group, “Arise and Shine,” by my sisters and brother in Christ who were in attendance. They sang, we prayed, had some birthday ganauche and God had some good words for me. He loves me … and you, too!

It was a very, very good day … and it’s not over yet. I get to have birthday week 'cause when awesome hubby gets home, we’ll get to celebrate some more. Cool!
