OW! A Birthday Bouquet



Today is outdoor wednesday and I have to say, it is a very special day to me. Please visit Susan, our host, at A Southern Day Dreamer, for more outdoor stuff.





Now back to today being special-- It's my birthday--yay! I'm excited because I am blessed with the gift to celebrate yet another year with my family and friends. Another year of adventures, learning, giving and receiving the joy of life from everyone around me. I don't look at it as getting old, growing gray hair or new wrinkles - nature will do what it has to do- to me it is definitely a day when I look back at all I have done, the lives I've touched and the ones that are still with me today and say "Thank You God for this fantastic gift!"

So I share with you my birthday bouquet of flowers. A collage from the pretty little things I get to enjoy on this peaceful morning. I took these pictures around 6:15 am, it's raining a little, and the weather is cool. Perfect day! Enjoy the flowers!

    Dear Yira,
    Thank you for e-mailing me
    I had never had anyone ask me for a nick name before...so I
    just put Debbie and it was my real name..I did not know
    that it would show up
    I am not to bright when it comes to computers and I have
    just been blogging since January 2009.
    Your post about your son graduating from high school had me
    in tears. I am a mother who enjoyed being a mother and
    having my children around me. But I wanted them to take
    flight and do what God had for them.
    Your tribute to your son was beautiful and what you said
    about your daughter not growing up in his shadows....most
    teachers, even though they don't mean to...COMPARE.....I
    come from a family of teachers
    I am looking forward to getting to know you
    blessings
    hugs
    debbie

  9. Well then welcome to the blogging world. I love the ego boost I can't seem to get anywhere else. It's great to share likes and dislikes with people that care because if they don't they just don't have to visit right? Thanks again for coming by and reading my past post.

  10. Thank you so much everyone for the birthday wishes. It has been a great day! Had a nice late lunch with wonderful friends, the best crab cakes I've had yet, treated myself to a Peachtini...yum. It was fantastic. Thank You.
