Welcome... to my party!!!
I love that you are here to help me celebrate my birthday, it is a busy time of year so I appreciate you coming so much.
I graced this earth one week before Christmas... 1948,
(yes, there I said it, I know some of you were wondering) and I have been trying to put my mark on it ever since.
Some things I am proud of - some things not so much. As I reflect for just one moment, I have just a couple of thoughts.
I think when you get to be a certain age, such as I, the thought crosses your mind, I haven't done what I set out to do! I haven't cured world hunger, been a missionary to Madagascar, wrote a book... ok, those might be a little high to attain but they seemed attainable when I was young. I just thought I would have plenty of time.
Somehow my path took a turn and some where along the way I managed to, feed the hunger of 6 growing children, show God's love to people around me and the book, who knows I might still have time to do that.
My point is that life is ever changing and that is the beauty of it, there is a brand new day every morning to do something special, you just don't know what God has in store next. Each day is a chance to start new again.
Two things in life I try to live by...
So let's have a little fun, and take a journey through the decades... just for laughs!
Highschool Graduation 1966
Well, enough of the laughing. Yes, I can hear you but no louder than me. Don't you love the red tie on my maternity dress and this orange linen thing I have on...ha!
Ok... let's play
Just to explain again how the Birthday blog Party works, you link up your post at the end of this post. Each party guest has made a gift for someone special in their life and is posting it on their blog and explaining why and what they made... so be sure and visit all the blogs that are linked here.
Then I will be posting on Sunday three people that I have chosen to receive my special gifts...

And now my wish...
I wish you all a very special Christmas and a year filled with love and lots of laughter.
I also, want to say a big thank you to all of you who came today and made my day so special. This has been such a great year getting to know all of you
and you have truly enriched my life.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart...
