What takes the edge off turning 50?...



Well, there really never was an edge. I don't mind turning another year older. I am another year blessed! But,it's been fun - we had a family birthday party yesterday and here I am enjoying being the center of attention.



Then, today, I took four of the dogs for a walk and checked the mailbox and there was a box in there with my name on it! Deborah from What Matters Most is Kindness sent me two bottles of lotion and a new ink pen. Thank you Deborah!



JP sent me shopping and I scored some really cool boots and two new dresses. So, now I've milked this birthday for all it's worth and can sigh and say I am so blessed. I have a wonderful husband, a family who loves me, good friends and most importantly I have Jesus Christ blessing me daily.

Blessings to you all from the holler

Sounds like you really did have a blessed day!
