February 20th about 61 years ago I was born....Hm!!
My dad likes to tell everyone that he and Mother were married in January and that I was born in February..Course it was of the next year but he likes just to leave a whole year out!! That is my onery 87 year old dad talking!!
Today is just like any other day for me. I am very fortunate to have lived this long. I was sitting here thinking about my blessings and thought why don't you just list them. So here goes...

  • I am blessed to know Jesus as my Savior
  • I am blessed to have stayed married to a great man for the past 42 years and he still loves me.
  • I have three children that have grown into wonderful caring and great adults with strong moral ethics.
  • I was blessed with great parents who taught me how to be a good adult.
  • I have seven super grandchildren who are growing up to be good Christian adults and who will hopefully set those same standards with their children.
  • I have been blessed with good health and a great attitude about life.
  • I have friends whom I love and cherish from all over around the world.
  • I love people and smiling is just second nature to me.
  • I love my neighborhood and my church is like a second home to me.
  • I love my family and they are my first priority.
  • I love my two cats Simon and Lucy they are my "new children."
  • I have blessings all around me that God brings me to me every day. Some I see and some are unseen.
  • I never want for anything.
  • I am loved.

What more can this lady of sixty-one want anyway!!?? Everyone have a HAPPY DAY....
