HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
Monday was my birthday... We were finished with the house. I went over there mid day and just went in and sat and stayed a spell.Time does fly....
I knew that it would be the last time that the little house would be empty and that there would be others living there and I would not be going in again for a long time. I guess that is a good thing. I just sat and listened to the quiet. Memories flooded my soul and even now my heart hurts.
Dennis did such a good job
with the little house. He put down the carpet and he finished the shower and tiled it! He is as handy as a pocket on a shirt.

I have trouble sleeping sometimes, and when I do get up I go out in my shop and work. My north window of my shop looks right over to the little house. Dad used to tell me that when he would get up at night and see the light on he would feel safe and get great comfort out of knowing we were there. After that I started leaving the shop light on all night.
I get up a lot at night,
I got up the other night and looked out the north window and left the light off and just worked in the dark. Silly, I know but they say time heals, and there has not yet been enough time.
I am moving the garden
from in front of the little house, moving the flowers to my back yard into one big flower garden this year. I am putting up blinds on the north window of my shop, there are going to be nights that I want to work and need to turn the light on.
Things change and time goes and memories that bring tears will one day bring a smile. I look forward to that day.
NOW ON TO HAPPY TIMES WITH MY FAMILY
|Birthdays are wonderful when you consider the alternative.|
|Cards and flowers who could ask for anything more! It is hard to see them but the roses are lavender and they match the card that my sweet bought me.|
I was treated to dinner out with my sweet husband and my wonderful son and and and BOTH of my wonderful brothers. What a treat! I do not remember the last time we were all together except for the two services for Mom and Dad. We went to a really nice Italian Restaurant and the food was wonderful but the company was beautiful blessing.
My son got me a butt load
of garden tools that I NEEDED so bad . New rakes and new limb cutters and new hoe and gloves. Now that might not seem to be the perfect gift to you but for this gal it was WONDERFUL!
My sweet brother Larry and his crazy wife Marty got me smell good stuff which I can always use and the other brother PE and wife Alpha picked up the ticket for my dinner.
My sweet sweet husband
got me a bike and we are headed to Tulsa this weekend to pick it up! I do not remember the last time I rode a bike. There is plenty of places to ride out here in the country and we are looking forward to getting some exercise and fresh air. (He is buying him a new one also)
Sooooooooooooo you see
I had the most wonderful bitter sweet day this past Monday..........
Life is good .........
God is faithful and HE has given me the gift of the love of my family and the hope of tomorrow..........
Love you gals!
