Today Is My Birthday

Today is my birthday.  I was born at 2:47 in the morning, 51 years ago.  Some people say I celebrate my birthday for days, weeks, and sometimes even my entire birth month!!!   Whether for a day, or week, or month, I am reminded each year, how very fortunate I am to have such wonderful close relationships in my life.  I am truly blessed.  On Sunday, my brother and all of his family came out to take me to dinner.   Yesterday I got to spend the entire day at a favorite day spa with my dear friend Jae, whose birthday happens to be the day before mine.  Today I received good wishes from early this morning, and  throughout the day. They came by way of phone, txt, mail, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and even a cleverly penned poem from my dear friend Maryrose.  Tonight we all went to our oldest daughter's house for a wonderful dinner and little birthday party.  She and my son in law Jake prepared a fantastic dinner, and our grandchildren provided us with lots of smiles and entertainment!  My Mom and Nana came out too.  Yes, I am feeling very blessed.  And do believe I may be the luckiest woman in the world!  I did not bring my camera, because I knew that both of my girls would be taking pictures with theirs.  When we got home though, Greg took a photo of me with my son Drew, because he had to work tonight and missed the party. 
He took this picture of me with all of my fun goodies.
This afternoon I saw this note on the door that goes into the house from the garage.  We have this white board here for messages.  I liked these.
Some of my favorite cards.
This one I thought was so perfectly appropriate.
I am sure that in the next day or two, my girls will be blogging some of the festivities on their blogs.
Thank you, to everyone who made this day so special!!!  It was a perfect day!!!

Happy birthday Kris! I'm just checking in before heading to the airport and home. I thought I'd made the right day but your birthday was yesterday. You seem to have some question as to how long to celebrate. It's one month--31 days--that one is to celebrate, be feted, fawned over, etc. Enjoy every minute.

Best,
Bonnie
