A Handmade Birthday

Yes this has proven to be a most delightful birthday. I wish my hubby could have been here, but other than that it was pretty much perfect. The kids and I played pretty much the whole day. We ate hamburgers for two different meals, and fries also. I bought some beautiful new scrapbook papers for my upcoming illustrations. We had dinner with my dear friend Clair at McDonalds. The kids played while we talked. It was a wonderful birthday dinner. Clair made me some hand knit wool socks for my gift. I love them. They will keep my toes toasty and warm all winter long. When I arrived home my surrogate Mom Brenda came by and brought me flowers from her daughter Candice (one of my favorite people) and homemade cinnamon rolls. I was so touched by all the thoughtful gifts. My heart is warmed by all their kindness. What a perfect way to end a most certainly perfect birth day.

Another year, another beautiful year has passed. How grateful I am for all the many years I have lived on this earth. Here's to many more.
