I want to thank all of you who sent happy birthday messages today. You made me smile and  laugh and feel so very blessed. However, because we left very early this morning to visit our granddaughter at the university she’s attending and have just now arrived back home, I’m not going to be able to read the day’s blog posts or reply tonight to the comments you made. But I just couldn’t let the day come to an end without at least letting you know how much I appreciate all my followers and the things you post that enrich and bless my days and my life. I promise that I will be back on board tomorrow ready to read your posts and respond to your comments. Love and hugs, Natalie

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. ~1 Thessalonians 5:28  ✝

906. God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. -Voltaire 


It’s my birthday and I’ll twirl if I want to, dance if I want to, eat cake if I want to… Sooooo I’ll have one of those…

And one of those…

And one of those…

And one of those…

And a piece of that…

And a piece of that…

And a piece of that…

Oh my, what have I done to myself? Woe is me! Now I’ll have to cry if I need to, cry if I need to, cry if I need to ’cause I ate too much and have an awful belly ache… 😦

Thanks be to God for His indescribable  gift. -2 Corinthians 9:15
