Thanksgiving Postcards

I had another birthday today.

I received calls from my parents, in-laws, sisters and brother, close family friends, girlfriends, and children. All kinds of birthday wishes were sung to me!

I received birthday cards in the mail.
(Even one from Anthropologie with a 15% discount card)!

I received emails from friends at work.
(They really appreciated the edible birthday treats I brought in)

My nieces and nephews and friends of my children posted on my wall on Facebook.
They made me feel cool.

I received text messages from my daughter.

My husband offered to take me to dinner and since sleep was what I really desired...he put a lighted candle in a dish of coffee ice cream and sang to me.

I received a lot of love today!

I am so grateful for this love and very thankful for all that I have!
Thanksgiving wishes to all!
