Birthday Blessings!

Tomorrow is my 36th birthday.  I feel so blessed to have lived another year that I really don't care that I will be closer to 40 than I will be to 30.  My parents are coming to visit tomorrow and my husband has ordered me a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing from my favorite bakery The Cake Box.  Yep, that's right no dieting for me tomorrow!  The hubby made reservations for me at Burger Jones for my dinner tomorrow and I plan to have a very large juicy burger with fries!  Burger Jones was voted the best burger in the twin cities area.  It's my birthday and I gonna eat whatever I want! 

When I got home from work yesterday my son came up to me and said "come mommy and open your present".  The hubby quickly scooped him up and whispered into his ear "It's a secret remember, mommy will open it when grandma and grandpa come".  Then my son yelled very loudly "No, mommy should open now!".  Gotta love the boy!  He cracks me up everyday. 

I am so blessed to have another year with my family, especially my son and hubby.
I am blessed to finally have my health back in time to see my parents and celebrate my birthday.
I am blessed to have a thoughtful considered husband who is involving our son and my parents in my birthday celebration.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.  For by me your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.  Proverbs 10 and 11

I pray that the Lord blesses me with many more happy healthy birthdays and his wisdom and blessings continue to be multiplied upon me.  I pray that my light continues to shine brightly to be a testament of God's grace and love.  Until next time...
Blessings!

  4. @Chastity Williams thank you so much! I really liked the last song you posted on your blog. I rarely buy secular music anymore, but I really like the sound and groove to that song.

  10. @SpecialK thank you.
    @Minasek thank you. I feel that age is only a number and most people don't dwell on the fact that they have another year. I feel so blessed to be alive that getting older means being with my family and blessing the people in my life.
