What a Great Day

I had a great birthday and want to thank all of you who stopped by to wish me a happy birthday. Your comments made me smile and I was truly blessed. Thank you Iris for my e-birthday card, it bought a smile to my face. I want to thank Karolee for my new handmade red scarf. She had a giveaway and I won on my birthday. Funny thing is she didn’t know it was my birthday.

I’ll have to brag on my hubby. I woke up to a beautiful bouquet of yellow and pink roses (pictured above), a musical birthday card (it played, “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I Got), my favorite chocolates and tickets to see South Pacific. My wonderful kids called me and sent great cards. (I had to threaten them not to send any gifts.) They always seem to give perfect cards. My son sent me an “I Love Lucy” card. He knows how much I love Lucy. I don’t know what was better that it took him twenty minutes to find it or that he looked for that long for the perfect card for me. My daughter’s card was very humorous. The front had Snow White on it with the words, “Happy Birthday from one fairest of them all to another.” The inside said, “Who says there can’t be two of us.” To know my daughter (she is shy) is to truly appreciate this card.

When I got to work the ladies spoiled me. One made me jewelry (a necklace, bracelet and earrings). She also bought in bagels and a vanilla latte. Another one got me a gift card, chocolates and bought in fruit (melons and grapes). The new gal got me a nice bottle of merlot (she made a beaded cover for it) and chocolate cake. The doctor I worked for gave me a very, very nice bonus check and bought lunch for the whole staff. A patient even stopped by to bring me a small bouquet of red carnations as an appreciation for things I’ve done. She didn’t know it was my birthday. I felt very appreciated. (Pictured below are all the gifts I received.)
Since Jen asked, pictured below is my latest Lucy doll. It’s from the episode where Lucy and Ethel get the same dress.
My sister called me and my oldest friend, Juliana (I’ve known her since I was seven years old) sent me an email wishing me a happy birthday. I also got phone calls from my father-in-law and his brother (Uncle Bob).

Tom and I had a great dinner at Bone Fish. I had a birthday martini and we shared a Crème Brule for dessert.

My day was wonderful. I’m truly blessed. Again thank you all for making my day so very special. Have a nice weekend.
