A husband who loves me, but who tries to tell me that I am spoiled - humph! LOL
He is my best friend ... my soul's heartbeat.
2 awesome kids. A daughter and a son who want to spend time with me :-).
Such a blessing!!!
They have brought me laughter and tears. Joy unspeakable.
They are my strength.
My daughter gave me one of the best birthday presents ever this year ... the thoughts, the plans of a surprise birthday party.
Due to hubby's job - plans got changed.
But just the thought, the plans - and that she did it!!!
I love her so much!!!
(I have never had a birthday "party" - so I know I would have enjoyed it!!! :-) )
God allowed us to visit with our son on Saturday evening.
We were in the area, and Joshua wanted to take momma out to eat for her birthday.
It did my heart and soul a world of good! :-)
6 PERFECT grandkids!!!
I don't care what their daddies and momma's say!
They ARE PERFECT!!!
And I am perfectcly happy with all of them!
They are all unique, they all have their ways of bringing laughter to my heart, and a tear to my eye. They are the wind beneath my wings!
A family that puts the FUN in dysfunctional :-)!
More friends than I ever thought I would have!
Friends who encourage and inspire.
Friends who lend to the convictions.
Friends who lift me up and carry me thru the darkest of moments.
God has seen me thru a lot of heartaches and a lot of seasons of grief ...
He remains my strength and my stay thru it all.
He has given me rainbows in the midst of the storms.
To me, turning a "number" at my birthday is not a big issue ... the hardest birthdays I have "endured" were not because of a number - but rather due to the circumstances of life.
And birthdays tend to enlarge the "issues" sometimes.
This year, turning 50, was a bit hard.
Again, not because of the number - but just "LIFE".
It has been a difficult year (since the last birthday) ... and I was feeling a bit discouraged - but husband, kids, grandkids, family and friends ...
THANK YOU FOR ALREADY MAKING THIS A GOOD 50TH!!!!!
I LOVE YOU!!!
Working here at the house today ... cleaning up Rick's work truck ... unpacking ... going thru receipts and paperwork ... trying to catch up on blogs ... going to catch up on reading the Word!
Planning to take a good hot long shower :-) ... watch a movie ... just some DOWNTIME :-)!!!
Rick is getting us breakfast sandwiches at Subway this morning ... looking forward to a quiet breakfast!
We are still thinking and praying about going OTR - we have conflicting emotions and thoughts about it all.
Not wanting to do anything that God doesn't want for us! Jeremiah 29:11.
...Well, on to the day and doing "catch up" :-)!
