On Sunday evening, our Christian Nation Church called us and had a live conversation with us during their service. It was a very sweet phone call and we enjoyed talking to them. Near the end, the whole church sang Happy Birthday to me. How thoughtful! THANK YOU CHURCH FOR ALL YOU DO TO SHOW US YOUR LOVE, YOU ARE THE BEST!!
Phillip had to be gone all day long on my birthday, today, Nov. 6th, so we celebrated my birthday on Monday, Nov. 5th. We walked to the mall, ate lunch, and I bought some dressy boots with the money that Dad and Mom D. had given me for my birthday. Here it is so chilly and rainy that most ladies just wear boots most of the time. My family bought me a small CD player to put beside my bed so that I can listen to Bible CDs, for I'm too nauseated and sick on some days to sit and read my Bible. They also got me some nice knives and a couple CDs of some neat Indian flute music. I was going to try to make myself a cake or pie for I knew that my family would want me to have some kind of dessert to celebrate my birthday, but then both Phillip and I happened to remember that Baskin Robins in the mall would probably sell Ice cream cakes. So, Phillip checked and they do. He was looking at the cakes and the sells lady told him that if he bought a HALLOWEEN cake that she'd give him a discount. So, that is what we did....the cake we got had a cute smiling pumpkin on the top. =D Hey...It tasted just as good, and was cheaper! =) I was sick most of the day, but still enjoyed the day out with my family. Kimberly sewed me this cute jean purse that I am holding, and Sarah made me some fun treasures too, she just couldn't find them before we took the picture.~The kids and I and all of my nice gifts! My family loves me and takes GREAT care of me, and I LOVE THEM TOO!~
Today, on my birthday my Kimberly made me a fruit salad for breakfast and my parents called me. (They send me Taste Of Home magazine for my birthday gift...a PERFECT gift!!) I have hopes of another phone call today too...my dear sister Laura. =) I'm having a Happy Birthday, and Thank God for another GREAT year He has given me!
