My Special Birthday!

My family makes me feel so special! They took me to Carrabbas to eat last night for my birthday. They had a waiter sing "Best Wishes" in Italian to me. It was beautiful! They made a book for me that you can see above in the pictures. They all wrote one word that they would use to describe me. I only hope I can live up to this one day, but it was so special to me. This was the sweetest gift. They also gave me an ipod. I am excited about this, even though I have a lot to learn. My mom gave me the most beautiful African Violet that she has had for 3 years. Her name is Elaine! Hope I don't kill it!
On the way home, my 12 year old grandaughter called me and told me she had a birthday present for me just from her. She made a blog of her own, in honor of me for my birthday! Please check it out. It is great. I am so proud of her! Then I got home and found a gift card from my sister Brenda in the mail. Thank you Brenda!

When my children were small, they would ask me what I wanted for my birthday and I would always say PEACE, HEALTH & HAPPINESS. (especially when they were teenagers) Ha!. They would get so mad at me for not telling them something for them to buy me, but that is truly what I wanted.

Of all the gifts I have received, the best gift was knowing that all my family has a roof over their head, clothes on their back, and food to eat and we have PEACE, HEALTH, & HAPPINESS.
Oh how we are all so blessed!

Thank you to my Lord for my special Birthday!

Sorry about the vertigo and hope you are soon over it. Loved the photos and the blog of your GD. I too love Italian restaurants. Sounds like your birthday was really special!
