Can't believe it's been a whole year since THIS amazing birthday celebration! But time has a way of marching on. We had co-op the day of my birthday, so I took a party with me to class! (these are most of my students.... 3 were absent).
I asked for a "card shower" from my family, and this is how sons L and C interpreted that.... 21 cards made from notebook paper, with one sentence of appreciation on each one, showered down upon me! Love those boys!
One of my boys was not feeling well the evening of my birthday, so we reserved my cake and ice cream until the next day when he could join us in the actual eating!
How truly blessed I am! So many, many things to be grateful for.....
Lord, thank you for the gift of life, and the gift of age. Thank you for my family, near and far, who have loved me and love me still. Thank you for my incredible friends, who speak truth to me and love me no matter what. Thank you for Your sweet presence, and for Your mercy. Help me to cultivate gratitude, and to notice Your daily blessings throughout this next year. I love you!
