Birthdays are still fun!

Birthdays are still fun after 40! I can officially say this since I just celebrated mine over the weekend! When I woke up and went to the kitchen (to start the tea water!) I found a pretty bouquet of flowers and a card on the table...... somehow Pete snuck them in late Thursday night! (Actually, that is why they came home late from practice!) He knew if he got flowers after worship team practice he could get them inside with the guitars etc. and I'd probably already be in bed vs. getting them after work and chance freezing them out in his truck awaiting the perfect time to smuggle them in!! (His plan worked!) And then, as if flowers weren't enough, he took me out for dinner that night too! (What a guy!) I also was given a beautiful silver cross necklace with a rose in the center of it and an awesome dragonfly suncatcher!! THANKS EVERYONE! :)

Saturday we had been invited over to a friend's house for dinner...... they had birthday cake for dessert!! :) That was fun!! Then on Sunday after church, Audrey took me to a movie & dinner at Panera Bread!! What a wonderful weekend!! By the way, if you want to find a good movie to watch........ Audrey & I HIGHLY recommend "Freedom Writers"!! This is a definate MUST SEE movie!! She and I have decided this will become part of our collection when it becomes available!

This is how my birthday weekend went.... AND to top it off; when we got home Sunday night I didn't have to make the guys' dinner AND the kitchen was cleaned!! I have an AWESOME family!! THANK YOU ALL for making 'my day' into a weekend of love!!

Happy Birthday!!! It sounds like you had a great one. (Sounds like a Proverbs 31 woman is enjoying the "fruit of her hands"!) May God richly bless you and give you many, many, many more! :)
