Today is my birthday - the 86th one! Made it through another year and in reasonably good shape considering the number of years I have been on this earth. I consider myself blessed to be able to do what I do and am so thankful for my dear family. How lovely to have two kids who are just the best, and three beautiful granddaughters who have brought me so much joy. Now there are three darling greatgrandbabies with a fourth on the way. I am a fortunate woman. It is amazing that a lot of the time I don't feel old on the inside--even though I know there is much I used to do that I no longer can. That's okay, though, since I still find contentment in my quilting and blogging and working on the computer. I am also thankful for the lovely group of quilting friends that I have who include me in road trips, lunches, etc. You are a sweet group and I enjoy being with you immensely. I don't have many friends my age in Midland - these girls are all much younger than I. Sharing the love of quilting with them keeps me enthused about our mutual obsession.
The little video above shows you a card that Leslie and Elle, her daughter, gave me the other day at Sit and Sew. They are two of my favorite people! It is the cutest card!! Made me laugh and still does. My video taking is not very smooth, but I think you will get the idea.
So, here I am at 86 and amazed that I have come so far. I hope for at least a few more years, but there is no assurance of that. The best thing to do is just to live, love and enjoy your life and thank the good Lord that he has blessed you with loving family, fun friends and a lot of wonderful memories!
