My Birthday...

Today is my birthday. I've been thinking about how blessed I am and am just so thankful for my wonderful life. It really is wonderful! I have a great family that I love--I even have great in-laws, both mom-in-law and daughter-in-law are dear to me. I've been pretty spoiled all my life. God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and son, not to mention grandbabies. I can worship without fear or oppression. I do not know what it is to starve. I've never been rich by the standards of most people but I certainly count myself as rich in every way that counts.

Yesterday, my mom made a wonderful lunch for all of us and she made my favorite birthday cake. I got to talk to my son who is on the other side of the world doing his thing and hopefully will be home in a month. My daughter-in-love bought me a cool musical birthday card (James Brown singing.......I FEEL GOOD) and some sweet University of Tennessee pajama pants. My brother and sister-in-law gave me a Starbucks gift bag, kitchen towels and a recipe book. JP gave me some lovely sapphire earrings and some other stuff he doesn't know he bought!! LOL. He's so great. Speaking of JP, he out did himself on birthday cards--he got me two. I have to share them with you, so here goes.

First one says: (he gave me this one at my parents yesterday)
Front of the card......... I really hope you like this birthday card...
Inside........ Somebody farted in the card shop and I could only hold my breath long enough to grab this one!
Happy Birthday and many more.
(I told him he was probably the inspiration for the card)

And this one I got this morning: Ready???
For My Wife with Love
A Birthday Poem for You

When I kiss ya
When I miss ya
When I'm feeling
tired or lazy,
When we're busy,
In a tizzy,
When I drive you Kinda crazy

When we're romantic
or almost frantic,
When we're apart or we're together
One thing's certain
(And I'm not just flirtin')
I love you with all my heart, forever.

Okay,,,everybody say "aaaawwwwwww." Wasn't that nice? See, I told you, I really have a wonderful life. I'm having a great birthday and hoping that you are as blessed as I in the holler.

Dear "Mrs JP"
I would like to wish you a very, very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It certainly sounds like you have been enormously wonderful!
(By the way...we are blessed by YOU!)
But such beautiful gestures all around - particularly your Mom's cake - wish my mom was still around to bake for me. I am also so happy about your son :)
Sending lots and lots of love for a blessed birthday.
