Happy Birthday to Me

Today marks the completion of my 40th revolution around the sun. Wow! The earth seems to be moving faster all the time. I'm now officially older than my father :)

Last night I was contemplating God's grace and mercy in my life. I have a wonderful family, health, enough for all of my needs and some of my wants, good friends who walk alongside me and encourage me to righteousness, a husband who love me like Christ loved the church and daily lays down his life for me, and many more too enumerable to list. He is so good who takes an undeserving sinner and restores life and brings joy. There have been hard days, many of them. And joy in the midst. And peace. What a blessing.

The girls made me breakfast this morning. We bought pasteries at Costco yesterday and Sierra made a really good fruit salad to go with them. Hailey set a lovely table using the red glasses and red cystal bowl. I should have taken a picture.

Chance is taking us to dinner tonight. We might go see Bella, I can't decide if it would be good for the children or not.

The only thing missing is Mike. But I will get to seem him next week! All in all, a good day :)

Happy Happy Birthday, Michelle! {{{{Here's a birthday hug for you}}}}

May God give you a great birthday and a wonderful dinner. Way to go, Chance! Do you know where you get to go for dinner?

Happy Birthday,

Happy, happy birthday to you!! I love the thought of another completed revolution around the sun! I may have to borrow that later this month.

My birthday is one of my favorite days. Not because of gifts. In fact, the best gift I received last year was DS telling me Happy Birthday about 50 times through out the day. It made me smile each and every time.

So....Happy Birthday to you!

We went to PF Changs. Sooo good! Then Nikkae took me to see Bella. Then the next day we ordered pizza, borrowed a movie from the library, and had banana splits after dinner. Then I'll celebrate with Mike and my family this weekend. I'm having a birthday week!
