Hello! I have a little different post to share today. It's a bit on the late side but I just couldn't get the post written before now.
I turned 50 earlier this month! I have been preparing myself all year for this. I don't handle the birthdays with "0" on the end very well and I was determined this year it was going to be NO BIG DEAL so all year I told myself, "I am 50". I pondered throughout the year the weighty things so when my birthday came what remained was, "Gratitude"!
My husband told me to clear my calendar the first weekend in December as he had a surprise trip planned. My thoughts raced all over the place and quite honestly, I didn't feel like going on a trip! I put on my happy face, packed my bag and got in the car. When we passed the airport, I was a bit relieved. When we stopped in the middle of the city I was certain that my friends had cooked up an outing, what I NEVER dreamed was that my BIL and Sister would step out of a hallway of the lobby of a hotel and shout SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They drove 6 hours 20mph on icy roads plus another 5 hours just to surprise me. My family kept this secret since August!!!!! I have never been so surprised or felt so deeply loved! It was a fabulous day.
It wasn't just my family that placed a warm glow in my heart this month but also sweet friends!
Isn't this a beautiful collection of cards!!!
