for all the nice birthday wishes.
If I had to pick one word to describe this birthday it would be "thoughtful".
Seriously spoiled am I.... for heaven's sake Jode's (no J. this time) post yesterday was
quite impressive and very sweet. He loves me so well, like really.
And for the record, though I wish I was closer to the number 26,... I'm really 35.
Like how did I even get this old because I sure don't feel like that number.
Jode had heard me say at Christmas time when the girls had gotten their Tom's that I may like to have some too. So he picked me out a pair of cute red corduoroy ones.
You all remember my luv of red shoes right, I kind of have a thing for them.
And now I feel super cool wearing my red Tom's too, which make them all the better.
I was greeted first thing by signs and balloons yesterday morning that the kids had drawn.
The night before Jode tried to make a cake and when I found it that morning sitting on the counter this is what it looked like. I think a chunk must have fallen off the side.....;)
This card was my favorite and kind of ironic to find sitting in my mailbox that afternoon because yesterday morning I started a new bible study called "Do you think I'm beautiful" by Angela Thomas.
It made me want to cry.... happy tears, of course.
That evening the kids and Jode set in to cooking me dinner but not just any dinner.
He did what all good men should do that don't know a ton about cooking... he consulted Paula Deen. The recipe he chose consisted of stuffed manicotti shells with sauce, salad, and bread.
I was too full from eating out at lunch to eat a whole bunch but the point was that he had fixed dinner and I didn't have to worry with 3 hungry mouths to feed.... thoughtful.
And lastly they sang_ I wished_ and then I blew out those candles on another year gone by.
