The Lord has been so good to me! My cup runneth over! Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
Today is my birthday. I am so thankful to have another year with my children, with my husband, with good health. God has met all of my needs. It has been a difficult year with lots of learning. The most fruitful lessons come from failing or falling. But, I have been able to get up and the Lord, himself, has helped to dust me off and send me on again to learn and grow.
I rejoice in my weakness because HIS Strength is made perfect in weakness.
Yesterday, Mr. Santos took me and the children along with some friends from out of town out for lunch. It was very generous of him and I had a wonderful time visiting.
Then today...look at what fun I had!
Isn't this the most beautiful cake you have ever seen? Sophia had her first cooking class today with a friend, and this was their project. Gorgeous!
My favorite red roses delivered personally by some good friends.
A yummy meal from another wonderful family. Beef enchiladas, a fresh salad and homemade ranch dressing.
My favorite people to eat dinner with!
The cake was DEEElicious. Chocolate cake with crunchy peanut butter filling. Good Job, Sophia!
Overflowing with love notes from my children.
That is a "Golden" Ticket...good for a whole day with my lovey doing whatever fun thing I choose.
Isn't that a sweet gift?
Mr. Santos helped the children to get me this CD. I love it! and listen to it while I clean the house.
Here is one of my favorite tracks.
My piano top (and my facebook page) full of birthday greetings.
A hat my Naomi crocheted with the help of a friend. In my favorite color too! I can't wait to wear it.
