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.

What a milestone! Happy belated birthday to you. I'm glad you had an awesome birthday/Mothers Day week. Magnolia trees are very nice, there are a lot of them in our area.

And yes, May is a great month to celebrate. :o)

Peace and Laughter!

Wow, many happy returns. As Cristina said, that's a great milestone, which sounds younger all the time. We have no May birthdays but Andrew will turn 45 later this week, on June 7th. The years fly past, don't they?
We can really tell by the kids growing. We have a federal election later this year which Logan will be able to vote in for the first time, having turned 18 this year. Chad has turned 18, or is just about to, isn't he?
