28th Birthday

I made it to another year, and I couldn't be more grateful.  I must admit that my 26th Birthday was probably the best of my life, but each one after is right up there.  I always seem to be amazed that by the grace of God alone I wake up on June 5th and have spent another year on this planet.  

I woke up next to my darling hubby today which is always great!  I got on my knees and thanked God for giving me this day with my husband, and then I started to see so much love on my Facebook page.  Thank you so much to all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday!  It was a great one!

After checking my FB I came into my room and saw balloons, presents, and my Birthday Sash all ready for me to enjoy my day!  
 I started to get cleaned up for a day with one of my best friends.  As I was getting ready my hubby got a text telling me that one of my other dearest friends had left a treat for me on the porch.  She must love me a lot because she brought me a plate of cupcakes, and if you know me, you know I love cupcakes. Lisa, I have to tell you what an amazing baker you are because lady, they were to die for!  I didn't share one!
After I was all cleaned up, and feeling cute, I put on my sash and my cute friend Neenie came and picked me up to take me out for some nummy Thai food.  Man it was good.  I was able to eat some soup, and it tasted sooo good!  Neenie, Ed, and I, had a great time at lunch.  It was such a fun day, minus the hurricane winds that brought it to an end.  Unlike me, my friends have kids and this wind storm was scary stuff.  It was blowing over trees, garbage cans, breaking windows, and on and on.  So we had to cut our Birthday date short and head home so they could be Mommies to their kiddos.

Janine dropped me off with a plan to go and finish our birthday party a little later this week.  She had a special gift in mind for me that touched my heart and made me cry when she told me.  I don't have it yet, so as soon as I do I can't wait to tell the story and show the picture.  As for right now, I just have to say 1 thing about it.  She was telling me one that she picked out for me, but she wasn't sure if I would like it.  That is why I started to cry.  She has no idea that the one she picked is one that I had looked at online back at Christmas time and that this particular gift is one of my most favorite things on earth.  If she would have given me my chance I would have picked  it myself, so I was moved to tears when it's the one thing that she picked out for me.  Now you know why I'm so excited to spend this time with her later this week!

Thank you to everyone who made my Birthday so special!  I get to see my Momma tomorrow, my sister in a month, and all the texts, emails, phone calls, cards, and FB messages, meant more than any of you will ever know.  A HUGE thank you to one my sweet Sunbeams who brought me a cake last night when I wasn't here.  I just can't believe how truly blessed I am to have the most amazing people in my life.  I am the luckiest 28 year old girl I know!

Thank you for the special earrings from some of my cute adopted nieces, and my cute kitchen stuff from my sister, and the money to donate to my camera fund...you all know me so well!

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! For making my Birthday so magical and special.  I'm so thankful to still be here on Gods green earth getting the chance to love each and everyone of you!  I am so blessed to have you in my life.

Thank you to my sweetheart who always makes my Birthday so special with all my favorite things, especially the candy and balloons!  I can't wait to celebrate later when you are feeling better.  Thanks for going above and beyond with the Lagoon thing even though it didn't work, we'll spend Friday at the Draper Pool and it will be just as great.  Happy 28th Birthday to me!!
