~ A Prayer of Thanks ~
Thank you so much for giving me forty years on this earth.
Thank you for giving me a husband and three BEEEEutiful children. Thank you for the good health and the bad health, for the ecstatic moments and the heavy sad moments.
Thank you for the full pocket days and the empty bank account days.
Thank you for the births and for the deaths.
Through them all, you have become so Real to me and I have gotten to know you better.
Thank you for saving me from my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life in heaven with You.
I pray that I can spend every day knowing You more and serving You better.
My birthday cake! Sophia decorated it!
The top layer is banana cake with coconut filling.
The second layer is chocolate cake with peanut butter filling.
Oh My! Can't wait to eat it. Want a piece?
She knows that I love birds! This was a little Christmas ornament she put on top.
The children made a Wonderful paper chain to decorate the house. Each chain is decorated with different designs. How special! Do you see the picture of the sun on the window? It rained all day today, but the children said,
"Mom! We made sure you had sunshine on your birthday!"
The girls above.
And Me below wearing my "Queen Mom" crown and drinking tea out of
a new birthday cup.
Now, THAT sounds wonderful!
We spent the afternoon at the Clay cafe painting platters. Mr. Santos took the children shopping and bought me some candy, flowers and beautiful red pajamas.
Aren't they Great?
