"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Not only is it my birthday but I'm entering a new decade today; you got it, I'm turning the big 60.
Today I am thankful for having survived the stupid things I did in high school and college and for having made it this far. I'm thankful for all the blessings in my life, my hubby of almost 34 yrs, my two amazing daughter's and their families-the grands are the joy of my life. I am thankful that even in the midst of hard decisions-like yesterday, family and friends are there beside me to encourage and comfort me. I am thankful for the Comforter, who never leaves me or forsakes me.
I am thankful that I was created to love my dogs so deeply and that saying goodbye is never easy, because if it were, I wouldn't have the depth of love for them that I do. I am thankful that we had Reggie an extra eight months and that we were able to hold him and love on him before he slipped away.
I want to give a big shout out to two of my blogging friends who have birthdays today also....
firstly Kris @ http://cakesbykristin.blogspot.com/, please go by and wish her a happy birthday. Kris is one of the ladies that I've grown so close with over the years of blogging; she is a delight, so creative and fun-you will just love her if you don't already know her. If we lived closer, I know we'd be the best of friends.
Also, Nellie @http://nelliescozyplace.blogspot.com/ , is also celebrating so pop by her place and wish her a happy birthday.
Thank you for all your kind thoughts, comments and prayers as we struggled with yesterday-I am so thankful for all of you.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
