Birthday thoughts

I have been dreading this day for a while now. Today is my birthday. A really big one. It has caused me to reflect on my life. Some of it has been sad and other times really bad but a whole it has been pretty wonderful.

I have a terrific husband. I have been married to this wonderful man for almost 37 years! He took this week off from work and we have been having some fun. We have eaten out a few times and even saw a movie yesterday. We don't seem to do that much. We have had the opportunity to have some long talks this week which is nice. We even drove a few miles down the road to watch the sun set!

Now that my birthday has arrived I have to tell isn't bad! Today feels just like yesterday and the day before. So the bottom line here is don't dread the future. It will be alright. God is right there with us every step of the way!

Well, I have to go now. Number one son just texted me and he is ready to know what I need done on the fence. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Remember that she with the most birthdays lives longest. :) I'm turning 61 this year and so far it's all been great. Well, some not so great, but I'm still weaving, so who cares? :}
