Gifts From The Heart

Last week I had a birthday.  It was a wonderful day and I treasure the time I had with my family.  My sweetheart and my dear, little mother and my cousin planned a special dinner for me – at my house.  My sweetheart cooked steak to perfection on the grill and my dear mother and cousin prepared a wonderful meal.  It seemed strange to sit in my living room – with my feet up – while they worked on the details of a wonderful meal.  Shortly before my mother and cousin and her hubby arrived I had surprise visitors.  My daughter and her daughters arrived for just a few minutes to deliver the most beautiful birthday flowers.    P8030330A very special gift was hand-delivered by one of my granddaughters.  It’s a grandma and her grandchild! So sweet. A special treasure.

High atop the flowers was a birthday greeting that is still ‘flying high’.     P8030332The flowers and the balloon still make me smile every time I see them and the little grandma bear is a constant reminder how blessed I am to be a grandma!

  7. Happy belated birthday friend!! We have the same birthday month too! Mine was the 7th- turned the big 50! Bill gave me a party at the house and my 2 sisters surprised me by coming up which was a blessing as Bill had no idea the all that goes into setting up for a party!

    Have been terribly (in a good way) busy and then my wifi and computer has had troubles so haven't been around much but wanted to come say hi!
