Wow. What a Birthday!

I had such a nice birthday.  It was relaxed and peaceful and fun (and I did not feel I was getting worse with my cold!)

I was totally spoiled.

I received so many lovely gifts!

painted clay flower pots (painted by my kids!)
breakfast
a scrumptious chocolate cake
an iTunes gift card
cut flowers
a “queen for a day” crown
a dandelion bouquet
birthday dinner  out
an amazon gift card
the movie ‘Blind Side”
The movie “Alice in Wonderland” (Disney)
flowers for the clay pots
phone calls and messages

… and a new computer.

I am typing this on my new MacBook Pro.  I’m astounded.  I love it.  Thank you, Chief!!!!!  It’s so pretty!

This is my account picture (notice my crown?)

here is a slideshow from over this past weekend…..

Many, many thanks to my family for such nice gifts and such a wonderful day and many thanks to those of you who left birthday greetings yesterday!

SuperSoldier, if you see this, know that your momma loves you and misses you.  Stay safe.  Come home soon.  Try to write.  Say “hi” to SirGrape.  Let me know when that first box arrives. (I’ll be sending another this week.) Remember, always, who you are.  Bring St Michael with you everywhere you go.  He and your Guardian Angel will be your best battle buddies!  Thank you for taking care of me and our whole country.  I’m so proud of you.  ~Love, Ma
