Thank you so much to all of you who sent such sweet birthday messages and comments and Goodies. Bless you! (An extra special thank you to Scorpion1352. She was the first one to wish me happy birthday with a sweet, sweet phone call and sent to me in snail mail an exquisite birthday card that she made. What a talented and creative lady!!)
My dear friend Michelle, known here as GettinSkinny, went all out for me and made my day incredibly special. The week before my birthday, she gathered up my girls, photographed them, and had some of them beautifully matted and framed for me. She picked me up to take me to lunch, and when we arrived at a local Mexican restaurant, seated there were nine others, family and friends, with HUGE birthday (and New Orleans Saints!!) balloons. She treated me and my youngest to lunch and a MOST beautiful and delicious red velvet birthday cake from my favorite bakery. God bless you, Michelle!!! Big thanks to everyone who attended my birthday luncheon and made me feel so loved and blessed. I have the best family and friends in the world.
My only disappointment was that my honey (CaptainCookie for those of you who have not yet met him) could not be with me on this special day. He is out on his ship for ten weeks (instead of his customary four), working hard for our family, sacrificing so much to provide for us. I love you, honey, and it would have all been so much sweeter had you been at my side. Your card was over the top and melted my heart. Thank you.
Much love to you, dear SparkFriends. You make my life so rich!
P.S. PepperLeah, I hope this is the last birthday either of us will have to spend with miles between us!!
