Happy Birthday, Me!

I woke up crying that my honey was gone. Then I saw my son's beautiful homemade card, where he cut out individual candles to match my years. It was a quiet day. Took off to get tested for Strep, because it's in the family this weekend. Cleaned the stack of dishes, talked to my brother who lives abroad on the other side of the world for over an hour or more, vacuumed most of the downstairs, a friend came over for a little visit, and at night had a wonderful dinner made by my oldest, followed by a yummy cake from the new bakery in town, and opened presents. They were very nice. Then I received text singing from a handful of my nieces and nephews, etc...other phone calls from my sister & oldest brother.

Kept missing my sister, but heard her beautiful voice singing "Happy Birthday" to me on the phone.

oh Lydia!! Happy Birthday!! what a beautiful gorgeous picture of you!! I bet you still look just as beautiful now. I know you probably wake up many mornings missing your honey. HOw hard that must be for you. I cant not imagine. I still wish we were not so far apart as I know we would have fun visiting and creating together! I'm going to country living fair this sept. Perhaps you can go this year?
I hope the sun is shinning on you this morning and that you are feeling blessed today!

Happy Belated Birthday, Lydia! I am so sorry I haven't been able to visit you in awhile. My time on the computer has been very limited the last few weeks--just bits and pieces because of all that's happening in my family right now. Thank you for always leaving such nice comments on my blog--I will catch up on yours soon. Your friend, Jann
