Oh what a wonderful birthday I had. My party began Monday eve when all of our family gathered here at our home. Due to conflicting schedules it was the best time to celebrate. Did my family spoil me or what!
Both families knew that for the last three years I've wanted to go down to Colorado Springs since we've only driven through. I have an antique mall I want to explore and many quilt shops as well as Garden of the Gods and the Cave Dwellings in Manitoba Springs. So as my birthday present, hubby's birthday present, Mothers & Fathers Day, we will all be heading down there in a few weeks. I am so excited about it!!
One day all the guys will go rock climbing while the girls & I go to Focus on the Family. I love these adventures, especially when we are all together; our oldest and her gang have been down there quite a bit so they'll be able to take us all around.
Yesterday morning began and not only did several dear friends text me Happy Birthday but some friends here took me out for breakfast. We had hoped to get to the mountains but it wasn't to work out so this was perfect. Let's see-I got a new rose bush, three Primrose plants, a plaque, a journal, a ceramic cross with my life verse on it. Then I was able to make it to my exercise class with my best friend here-she made my day just by spending time with me. Last night I talked to my brother and sister of my heart, my bil-so very thoughtful to have called. All in all, I think this was the best birthday yet-other than having my granddaughter born so close to my birthday last year.
Today hubby and I will be planting and figuring out where the flowering Plum tree that he bought me will go.
Hope you are having a joyous day and incredible week filled with blessings-I sure am.
