Happy Birthday to ME!
Fifty-one candles on the cake!
Fifty-one lovely, happy, and sweet years of a simple walk on the earth!
18,615 days of good air to breathe and 18,615 nights of snuggles in a safe bed.
I feel VERY loved by a personal God who knocked on the door of my little pink heart, came in, and continues to cover me with a generous blanket of grace. In light of FOREVER, this little blip (my lifetime) has filled me with wonder, schooled me in humility, and brought me again and again to the point of glad surrender. That's what I'm thinking today, September 25, 2009.
At this juncture, I'm drawn to happy images. I wanted to share some of my loved stuff with you today.
But, first . . . have a cupcake!
It's a thunder-y rainy morning here and reminds me of the birthdays of my youth. Growing up in Western Washington gave me many rainy birthdays! Memories of Karol, walking with me in the Sunday downpours . . . smile.
I'm so thankful for a husband that loves children.
I'm so thankful for our children and THEIR children.
Thank you, Mom. Thank you for your fine reading voice, your willingness to sit in the reading chair and take Karol and I to the Hundred Acre Wood.
Colors. Yummy purple, sassy red, lemon yellow, clear blue, earthy green, pumpkin orange, pretty pink . . . so good.
