Thank You Friends!


July 7th was my birthday! It was a wonderful day spent with my amazing husband. There were many blessings, roses of all colors, perfume, out to the movies to see Tarzan (wonderful movie), then we picked up lobsters and steamers and corn on the cobb for a delicious dinner. Who could ask for more?


Well, I got more! My son called from his vacation and his whole family sang Happy Birthday to me! Then my daughter and her family called and sang Happy Birthday to me too! I heard from my brother and sister and two sister-in-laws also. Being remembered by your loved ones is what is most important and precious to me.


If this wasn’t enough I was surprised by numerous old and new friends online that filled me up with well wishes making it an extra special day. I tried to thank each one of you individually. If I missed you I apologize and want to thank you all now for the lovely cards, flowers (virtual) and sweet messages that warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes! THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS OLD GAL’S BIRTHDAY THE BEST EVER! Thank you God for all my blessings!

Sending love and blessings your way! May God bless you.
