And the Beat Goes On!!

Today brought me another surprise package from Julie!! I can't believe how fortunate I am to have such generous friends!! She sent this darling package for my birthday including the "Irish Toast" chart and threads that are so rich in color. The cute little "blow roller" reminds me of keeping the child in us alive forever, and I just love it! Julie also reminded me she's from Kansas which is a place very dear to my heart in my life history. I was so touched by her gift and her thoughtfulness. Love you, Julie!!
Also, got a sweet note from Katrina, An, Vonna, and long notes from Simone and Patti. You all make me feel so special. Thank you for being good friends.
This is the best birthday I've ever had. I feel very blessed in family and friendships this year.
I have to share with you a funny thing: I sent my 3 children an invitation to read my blog about the trip with DH to the so-called Indian Settlement Village. My youngest son; (the one who's 30 yrs. old, a lawyer and expecting his 1st child mind you; this is not a little boy!! ) wrote back that he would never read my blog again! LOL
He said that his eyes immediately fell to the part that read that sometimes we have to "fend" and, like sex, do our wifely duty whether we want to or not! He really didn't want to read this about his mom!!! ROFL My other kids have gotten such a kick out of his response!!! My other son declares he may not want to read my blog either!! LOL

Glad to hear that you've had a great birthday, and that your house has sold! God is good!

Enjoy all your new stash! Stash for your birthday is the absolute best, isn't it? I have found a new needlework shop about 20 miles away to check out on my birthday next week!! Of course, more stash is the last thing I need, I have enough to keep me busy until I retire as it is!!

A belated Happy Birthday Deb. Sounds like you had an amazing time. Love all your gorgeous new stash!!

Boys - however old they are - don't like to think of their mommies as women. It's funny. My brother gets very squeamish when my mom mentions anything about her private life, too.

Those are some great gifts - I'm so glad to hear you've had such a wonderful birthday!!!

That's so funny with your son. He just wants you to be a pure mommy then, lol.

Happy belated birthday! It sounds like it was really great!
