The celebration started Wednesday after church when Mke took me on a date to the Log House. We had a great time just the two of us, chatting and talking wtihout interuptions from the kids.
Wednesday morning at 7 am David insisted that Mike take him to get me some flowers. God bless him because at 7:20 he walked into the house with beautiful flowers for his Mom.
My first day as a forty year old ended on a great note as these two nuts snuggled with me on a chilly and rainy Friday night while Mike and Kyle were out at football games.
I am not rich and famous by society standards but yesrerday I felt like royalty. Those around me made me feel so special. I was also blessed by my mission trip girls sending me sweet texts, and two preschoolers even sent me videos. Happiness is found in genuine friends, Jesus, handmade gfts and cards, date night with my soul mate, and my time with my family. I am blessed more than I ever deserve. I thank God for the forty years he has given me and I pray that He will give me forty more to serve Him.
