Abundant Birthday Blessings

One of my very special aunts and uncles
sent me a quilt made by my Grandmother.
I can never express my gratitude for
their giving spirit and thoughtfulness;
to have something once again,
so very special, made by her is a 'gift'.
...and Christy was so kind to surprise me with an
announcement that she will be taking me to hear
Ron Hall, author of "Same Kind of Different as Me",
next week...
I cannot wait to hear him speak, as his was one
of my favorite books of all time...
....and I was so blessed to be given a digital frame by
Mary Katherine and her family, and to have photos
uploaded on it for me to enjoy every day...
while Tripp's family were very kind to give me a
very special tote, with one of my favorite Scriptures and
also a bracelet with the same Scripture engraved on it...
-Philippians 4:13
...and my sweet brother-in-law took the grand kids
fishing and caught this 'whopper' above
along with several others
so we had enough for all of us to enjoy
a delicious birthday dinner,
capping off a great day with
family & friends...
We were given a Kindle which Jack & I
are very excited about.
He got to read the 1st book on it
since his birthday came first!
Thanks to my sweet siblings and their families
for getting this wonderful gift for us!

Thanks for all of the very kind birthday wishes
and the very special gifts.
I feel so undeserving, but at the same time
I'm very thankful indeed.

Blessings today and always,
Matthew 21:22
