Birthday Blessings

A Birthday is a special day,
an occasion for celebrating life,
for cherishing the past and reflecting on the present,
for thinking of the future and feeling happy in continuing my journey.
And most of all it is a time for thanking God for the gift of life
and for all that He has done in my life,
for all the miracles, big or small,
for every person He has put in my path ~
It is a time to think of what is really important in my life, what really matters.
It is a time to tell my loved ones how much I love them and appreciate them.
This day has come and soon is gone as all birthdays do
And just like a changing season my life goes on, as I pray
'Teach us to number our days aright
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.'
Psalm 90.12
The memories stay and these I will treasure with all my heart.

I haven't been able to be on here for a while for several reasons but here I am at last. In a way this is a belated Birthday posting, so a belated Happy Birthday to me if I may say so : )
I wish here to thank all my family, extended family, friends, on-line 'crafty' friends whom I have never met for all the good wishes, phonecalls, cards, egreetings, emails and gifts sent, you are all truly so very precious.
I thank my son's dear girlfriend who so generously drove us to the east coast for a stroll along the promenade since we are having problems with our car ~ we really enjoyed the cake treats at one of the cafetterias there. Also thanks Mum for treating us all out for lunch last Sunday!

One of the reasons I have not been able to be here very often is the fact that, as some of you already know, my computer unfortunately stopped working (eh yes, when it rains it pours). The service people said it was the motherboard and graphic card which, besides knowing it would be an expense, I was at a loss as to what I should do but decided to wait and while and see if maybe the parts would go on sale...I was definitely not going to buy a new one. In the meantime my dear son let me share his PC for which I am so thankful.
To cut a long story short, I was totally thrilled when on my birthday my family, that is my dear husband, daughter, son and his girlfriend surprised me with ALL NEW PARTS! So as soon as we find time to save what I need from my old hard drive, my son will be installing all new programs, etc. for me but I will not rush him as he is finishing his college assignments and those definitely come first. Thank you all so much <3

So watch out eveyone, I will be back on track soon!

A Birthday Blessing
Nothing is more sacred than someone's life, and no words more precious
