My Birthday

Yesterday I turned 39. I was showered with love from my family! Asher woke up singing Happy Birthday...and he repeated it several times. He also made me 8 birthday cards, with a prominent dinosaur theme. Spencer brought me a beautiful bouquet of miniature pink roses with one larger pink Gerbera Daisy in the center. *Happiness*! Spencer also made me a cake and let Asher help him decorate it. Joe wore his chef coat in our kitchen and prepared a special dinner, and also brought me flowers. I received gifts....but mostly, I received love. I also worked all day, but that is just a minor ugly detail. Oh, and cards galore! I love getting snail mail, and e-cards. It is so nice to be celebrated.

Now my hubs is currently carrying out the stomach virus theme we've been playing in our family all week. Poor thing.... today is his only day off, and he is sick. The boys are going on day 3 without a bath, and I am walking around with unbalanced hair on my legs, as I forgot to shave one of my legs on Saturday.... it's a lovely sight.

So, in 364 more days I will be 40 years old. And I am praying that God will bless me with those days. And I'm praying each of those days is filled with smoochies from my boys and deep belly laughter. And I'm praying that I love Jesus more and more with each aging day.

What a WONDERFUL birthday! Happy late birthday, Melissa. So sorry to hear your husband is (was?) sick. You made me laugh out loud about forgetting to shave one leg. Don't think I have done that, though I have forgotten to shave at all many times. (Or maybe I did it on purpose.)

I'm 39 also. But it's only about 180 days till I'm 40.

I'm so glad you had a good day!! I pray your year will reveal Jesus to you in new ways. And I'm hoping that perhaps we'll get to meet in person before we both turn 40. You never know--it could happen. :)
