Showers of blessing....

Thanks to each of you who sent such sweet messages on my birthday!! I asked the Father to bless each one of you in return!! I had an AWESOME week. Yes, my birthday celebrations tend to last for a week! haha Last Friday my sweet girlfriends treated me to dinner at Red Lobster and yes I CHOWED on some biscuits! YUM!! Then the sweet lady who does my hair treated me to a surprise touch-up on my roots and a haircut. She also gave me a TON of free products and then threw in a beautiful necklace and earrings just for kicks! I love you MaryAnn!!

Our air went out last week - yeah SPECIAL! We rent our home and the landlords aren't planning to replace the system so we were kinda stuck. Long story. Anyway, that's not the point. Thursday I spent my birthday at the DMV getting my license renewed, then went with my family to the pool. We came back to the "oven" and my friend Beth called for me to come have dinner at her house. We went over to eat and then played on her Wii and oh land sakes, what fun!! I spanked my man at bowling and then knocked him out in the first round of boxing. Of course, I won't tell you how badly he beat me at tennis and baseball!! hahaha

Friday my sister Regina came down and took me to breakfast and then to dinner. While we were at dinner she took my picture and then began announcing to everyone within earshot that it was my 40th. Everyone was wishing me Happy Birthday and ribbing me about being 40. It was hysterical! Then Saturday my sweet friends and prayer partners Lisa and Pam treated me to a manicure and pedicure! Can you believe that?! After I came home my sister came over to the oven and after an hour or so said "Let's go" and went to Lowe's to get us a window air conditioner! She's the greatest!! Such a blessing to me!

Yesterday was our Celebrate America program at church and it was really amazing. Each year, I admit, it's not my favorite program. I've never enjoyed singing patriotic music - I know, I'm just weird that way - but this year was really a good show. PLUS, all 3 of my babies were in it with Jimmy and I. I'm sure that's why I enjoyed it so much.

So, as you can see I was truly showered with the Lord's blessings thru my family and friends this week. He is so good to me and I'm so grateful to each one of them!! All of you are so special to me. I love you!! So, this week is looking promising. Jimmy has 2 interviews and a few other things lined up that look good. Keep praying y'all! Thanks and I love you too!!!
