I always feel especially blessed on my birthday. When I was in grade school, middle school and high school my mom would have a rose and a balloon sent to school on my birthday. I love when people take the time to wish me well and help me celebrate.
This year my mother-in-law invited me to go to a community-wide garage sale in a neighboring town. We took the boys and I found some good deals. Afterward, we met my hubby for lunch at my favorite Mexican Restaurant.
|I was treated to fried ice cream! Mmmm...|
After the kids had their baths, and I read to my girls from my favorite book (Betsy-Tacy Go Downtown, by Maud Hart Lovelace, who also happened to be born on April 25th), I took three hours and worked on my current story. It's almost ready for my Beta Readers!
Tomorrow my hubby and I will continue the celebration by going out with friends to dinner. My parents and Dave's parents will take the children for the evening and maybe we'll get to sit out near the campfire along the river (the snow is FINALLY melting!).
All in all, it's been a fantastic birthday, and an even better year. I can't wait to see what blessings God has in store for our family this year.
And today is my sister's birthday! Happy birthday, Andrea! She was born the day after my second birthday--which has always been a special bond we've shared.
What about you? What makes you feel special on your birthday? What are your plans for the weekend?
