T'was The Night Before My Birthday....




and all through the house, stand bouquets of flowers from my children and husband. Birthday cards line up on the shelf, full of warm wishes and much love. The florist has been busy.
I am much the child when it comes to my birthday or actually any holiday. I love celebrations and yes, I will be honest and say I love presents too. Who doesn't ? And if you don't, you don't need to explain : ) For a week, I have heard whisperings and giggles about surprises. I LOVE IT !
I am being whisked out of the house tomorrow afternoon and not being brought back until the sun begins to set. I love it. I adore surprises ! I can unabashedly say, being spoiled is not hard to take.
And as if some sort of special gift, Blogger has set me up with a spam filter...oh yes, I know they do that for many, but it was timely and such a blessing, surely they knew it was my birthday tomorrow.
The best part of my birthday is knowing I am loved, cared for, cherished and appreciated. What more could a person ever want out of life.
Life is good, it really is

Flowers from everyone in the family
Flowers from Melanie
A dozen long stemmed roses from Emery

Happy birthday! I've been a looong lurker here but when I saw your blog being set private. I was kinda upset that I didn't comment and let you know how I love reading about your simple lifestyle and the love you have for your family. But now, your blog is open yay!!!!!!!! You don't know how happy I am!!!!!!!!!
