Today is My Birthday--I'm Gonna Have a Good Time!!

Yes, today is my birthday!! And before I do anything else, I want to thank every one who left "Happy Birthday" wishes for me!! This was just what I needed today!! So, a big thanks to each and every one of you for uplifting me on this day!!

I have some pictures to share of presents that I received at work. I did receive a plant with beautiful yellow flowers, but I forgot to bring that home with me. It's probably a good thing though. Miles would have either eaten it or knocked it over and ruined it digging in the soil! We all know what a good kitty MIles is!!

These are Christmas penguin socks!! I think these are really cute, and I know that I'll be wearing these to work a little closer to Christmas.

And here is a glass lighthouse suncatcher. I love lighthouses!!

This is a small bag with Eeyore on it. This will be perfect for small knitting or crocheting projects!

And these are two pictures that were taken at Assateague Island in Virginia--my very favorite place. Someone I work with went there in September, and she enlarged and framed the pictures for me.

I've also received several beautiful cards in my e-mail!! And my friend, Peggy? Guess what she has been doing since I've been home from work and is still doing? I can see the e-mail alerts as I'm typing this. And she also made me cry joyous tears this morning before I ever left for work with her "Thankful Thursday" post!

She is sending me the gift of music!! I love music--just stirs my soul!! And she is sending me some of her and my favorite songs!!

So, a happy birthday all around!!

One last note--Grammy has decided to stop The Cleaning Game. However, the task for today was to pamper yourself, and I'm still going to do that. I'm going to bed early, get a good night's sleep because I have a lot to accomplish tomorrow in a day off from work!!

Thank you to everyone for making my birthday such a happy and joyous event!!

K--that's all for a while!!

Blessings Beth and HAPPY BIG DAY!
I'm glad you took a positive outlook and also did not post about your own personal family leaving you out because you are they can't celebrate your bday? What's with that? Forget it? As hard as it may be! I'm glad your kids are there!

I'm glad your work was good to you! And I'm glad that you are pampering yourself! If that means going to bed!

Great! I love the photos also...but if you can't bring your plant home because of our sweet kitty Miles than what about a photo of it!!!
The suncatcher is gorgeous! And how cute those socks & bag. I love Eeyore!

Sounds lovely!But what about a cake! "if I knew you were coming, I'd baked a cake"...

Anyways, I reposted 2 posts for Friday but they are already up, * you saw one on 77 days of prayer but I really want you to see GOD IS on the movie from Dayspring because it goes with your's a surprise. Be sure you do or else I have to figure out how to send it!!!

I'm not sending a song for each year but enough for a CD since I couldn't send you a gift! I know my presence is a present. I pray God's presence delighted your heart!!!

Happy Birthday, good friend Beth!
I'm glad you liked the TT & the balloons with Miles! I posted your new life verse!!! I guess many left their Happy BD at my place so you should read them in case they did not come by!

Peggy said...

Oh...and I did check out how you changed the Bible verse with the Christmas!!!

I do love Easter Resurrection Sunday more because of the ultimate day this is to celebrate! I Love Christmas but it is not the same since my family is gone mostly...just me. And I do not like the commercialization and the gimme attitude instead of what did HE give and can I give back???

Love about a nice relaxing bubble bath!!! Light a candle and sing!

Ohhhhhhhh, I'm so sorry I missed it. Here's to blessings being better late than never!

As I am about to post at Flickers I am sort of missing in action. Between work, studying and daily revival meetings in town there has been time for nothing else.

Miss you, but I AM here, really...
