The cake my sister made for me.
My family is such a giving family. My parents gave me some new "jammies", can't wait to get it washed and wear it. Then my sister gave me a Yankee Candle, rain washed scent. Oh my, it smells so good.
Crystal also gave me a gift that I will have to wait until June to get it. She bought tickets for her and I to go see Chonda Pierce. I am looking forward to that. Crystal apparently called Chuck to make sure we didn't have anything going on for that specific date and then ordered the tickets. That husband of mine can keep a secret for sure. I never knew anything about it until I opened my gifts today. Thank you sooo very much Crystal, I am so excited about our upcoming girls night out to see Chonda.
You know we have some pretty special people in our Church. They are continually praying for our family as we travel down the ministry road. They are always giving us words of encouragement. Today I was blessed by several ladies in our church. Mrs. Marie baked me a tray full of cookies and also added some candy to the tray. Then Mrs. Judy gave me a cute little purse with a very sweet and encouraging card. There was also a little notepad and pen in the purse. You know I think that these ladies are precious, even if there had been no gifts they would still have a special place in my heart!
What a great day! Thank you all for helping me celebrate my birthday.
