Birthday {loves}

A morning with church family singing praises to God and hearing a sermon  & Sunday School lesson that were {just what I needed}

Sweet praises being sung by Sunshine Girl to help pass the time on the road {and a smudgy mirror…keeping it real}

August 8, 2011 003 Wish you could hear her sweet voice {smile}

Open skies…this city-living, country-loving girl sure loves open skies

The love of my life who wrote beautiful words to me for my birthday that brought tears to my eyes.  This man makes me {swoon}.

August 8, 2011 007 I had to sneak this picture, by the way!  {smile}  He’s not mad. (as my daughter asked when she saw the picture.  Actually, he’s rarely ever mad.)  He was just thinking and probably wishing I wasn’t trying to snap a picture of him!

Country roads, take me home, to the place where I belong…

A homemade cake made by my Mom with 40 candles…my Dad made sure it had 40…no less!

Still getting embarrassed when people sing “Happy Birthday” to me

Wish we could have gotten a picture of the haze left by the 40 candles and that you could feel the heat they made.  Of course, it was the big joke at the time! {wink}

Cards made by my kids.  Something I will keep forever.

Awaking to a new day and realizing that 40 is not so bad.

It doesn’t even feel any different than 39.  {smile}

  1. Happy Birthday!!! You look just fabulous at 40!!!
    Many blessings,

  2. Happy, happy birthday, you sweet wonderful woman, you! You deserve everything you received from your family! (and whooo! a man with a knack for words? Mmmm-hmm!!) Love to you!

  3. Thank you, Sally. I definitely have a keeper with my husband. He is a wonderful man. :) He will probably give me "the look" for posting that picture! hahaha He's a behind-the-scenes kind of man.
