12,045 Days old!

You'd think I'd be a wise woman by looking at the number of days old I turned yesterday! Ha!

However, I am truly a blessed woman! My children rose up early and blessed me yesterday. Jackie arose at 6 and made apple muffins, from scratch, for breakfast. They were delicious too. The picture above is of Samuel waiting for his muffin. Clearly, he'd rather be eating it than posing for a picture.

The kids were all so excited. When the day started Libby had 2 cards for me. By 8:45 a.m. the cards had multiplied and she had 9 very special "emails" just for me. Somehow as they day dithered away we were back to the original 2. When I opened them up I was intrigued by what I saw. A white sheet of paper with circles drawn all over them. "What is this Libby?" I mused. "They are cakes, mommy!" Of course.
There were sweet cards, a coffee mug, the Velveteen Rabbit which Libby had removed from the bookshelf earlier in the week, Re-gifted jewelry boxes, paper crafts, and a beautiful sewing table with chair from my dear husband.
In sum, the day went far too fast and I was blessed far more than I merit! Thank you dear, precious family!
