A Day, special of sorts

Birthdays. March has 4 of them in our family. Today happened to be mine. I don't like to mention it much. But I will highlight parts of my day.

It's Sunday, so of course we went to church. I sang with the worship team today. During the announcements at the beginning of the service, Troy asked me to stand up....uh-oh! They all sang to me! That was sweet. During the service, I took a look at my phone and saw I had a message. It was a Happy Birthday wish from my SIL Manny. Oh so sweet! I cried, I did!

After church [we] - Hubby, me, Ellen, Kim, Marcy, Scott, Paityn, Corey, Christy, Aidan, Zoe, Greta, Lynn - ate at Ruby Tuesday's. I had fish, zucchini and rice. Soooo good! Then it was back to our house to relax and have some fun. I talked to Gina on the phone. We ate ice cream, cake, pretzels - mostly junk ;) (the diet starts tomorrow!)

It is now the end of the day. I reflect. And I see the Goodness of the Lord. I am Blessed.


I Love My Family!!
This is almost all of our crazy bunch....
Missing Gina, Joe, Manny and Laurencia

Happy birthday! I won't say belated because I think after one is a certain age (let's say 30ish), the celebration should last for an entire month!! I see you are starting your diet the same time I am (always)--tomorrow!!

Best,
Bonnie
