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.
