A Birthday for Me!

Today is my birthday! My 47th actually.

Me...a long time ago! :)

To be honest with you, this one has actually bothered me a little bit! I'm not really sure why but I've put myself in check, and decided it isn't so bad.....because I don't like the alternative and I'm so thankful to be here!

I woke up this morning to Joy and Luke bringing me breakfast in bed (a breakfast bar and cereal) and singing happy birthday to me....or as Luke says "Happy Day Day Mama".

Here's Joy and me.....we spent a little time together while Luke napped.....she even gave me a pedicure!

We're actually celebrating tomorrow with family.....going out to dinner to Pancho's, since Mexican is my favorite!

I just thank the good Lord for all he's given me and blessed me with and for giving me another year to enjoy it all!

I feel truly blessed.

Happy Birthday Tammy! I hope you had the most special of days!

Tanya said...

OH Tammy!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I'm so glad to know it and wish you a "belated" one!! Hope your day was very special (getting a pedicure from your girl would be quite a treat!) AND getting to eat out Mexican would be my choice as well!!
I'm 50 and it hit a little hard but like you could be worse!! So let's just forget the number and enjoy!!! You are only as old as you feel!!
Have a great week!!!

Here's to wishing you many more happy birthdays!

Happy Belated Birthday, Tammy! I hope it was a lovely and memorable one for you this year.

Todd's sister and her husband are still in China with baby Ellie. All is well and they are looking forward to returning stateside soon. I'll send some pics to you soon.

Take care!
