...has been blowing in here all day bringing with it the boisterous sounds of thunder and the downpour of rain. It passes by only to have the sunshine again leave the crisp clean smell of newly washed laundry.
Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments left on my Birthday. It was so heart-warming and uplifting to read them all. Remember, to be entered for the Birthday Surprise , leave a comment on the original post and we'll throw your name in the 'hat' or 'bowl' for a chance to win.
I had a very nice day. Aside from all your well-wishes I heard many more from my family and friends. Enough to carry me until the next birthday I'm sure! The hubs made a super-packed-to-the-brim-with-fresh-veggies-pizza and it was delish! (this has become his specialty recently, even hand-making the dough). Later we went out for a coffee drink and a little chocolate to celebrate. You can't celebrate without chocolate...you can try, but there would be no fun it it...believe me.
Our families will soon all be getting together for one big ol' August birthday blowout and there will be yet more celebrating and gifts. Celebrating the birth of a new life...isn't that what it is all about?
