Happy Birthday To Me

I turned 50 on May 8th.  That was easier to type than I thought it would be.  My husband spent the days between my birthday and Mother's Day doing dishes and laundry for me (he took a few days off of work - just for me!)  My family took me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant, which is spendy so it remains a once or twice a year thing.  We had a terrific time and I'm so thankful for each of them.  I am so blessed.

Mother's Day was very nice as well.  Todd made blueberry pancakes and presented me with a platter of pancakes shaped into the word "MOM" - very clever.  I got cards from everyone and then I was lead out into the front yard, where a magnolia tree stood waiting for me.  I had been admiring the few magnolia trees in our area and Todd thought I'd like one on our property.  I was so surprised and pleased!  Can't wait to get it planted.  Again, I feel so blessed to have this family.  Thank you, Lord!

Happy Birthday to all the May birthdays that I know are out there!  It's a great month to celebrate.
