I LOVE Birthdays!

I love birthdays! My birthday, your birthday, his birthday over there. They are just fun. I have never understood why people lie about their age either I mean you couldn't pay me enough to be in my early 20's again. And I am just certain that if we are still all here my 40's are gonna rock even more than my 30's have.

I turned 36 yesterday and was so excited cause the alternative means I'm not here with you lovely people to entertain you with my random blog. ;) Plus Dan is going to be 40 in July and well that is just plain fun to bug him about. He's hot though so I guess 40 is the new 20 or something like that. :)

My day started off with my husband coming home after three days and that was all it took to make my day. I was so glad to just hang with him. The cards the girls made me, the singing, the massage I went and got and the surprise gifts from family and friends not to mention lunch out with friends, and then dinner and video games with Jason, Ruth and Taylor to round out my day really helped too! :)

Thank you to everyone who stopped by, emailed, sent cards, text me, gave thoughtful gifts and who prayed for me yesterday. So blessed to be here another year to see God's transformation in my life and see what he has for me to do while I am here serving him. I always look forward to the growth and the change another year brings and oh so thankful to be healthy at my one year mark of no meds this week. Love you guys!

Happy Birthday to you! Belated! I remembered your bday days before it was and then forgot...please forgive me, because I am so grateful for the life the Lord has given you. When I see you and am in you presence I see Christ in you and He is faithfully transforming you from glory unto glory! Enjoy your cruise...can we connect on the phone before you leave?
