Yep, It's My Birthday Today

Yep, It's My Birthday Today!

Today is my birthday and I had a very nice day, nothing real exciting but it was a good day!

I went to lunch with my 84 year old mother to a favorite restaurant of mine, The Cracker Barrel.  We don't really go all out on birthdays any more but I plan on celebrating with my sister this weekend also.

My husband got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a wonderful scented candle and a really special card that meant a lot to me.  Money is tight since we have 3 kids going to college, if you know what I mean.

Material things are really unimportant.  I'm just thankful to be healthy and that I have a wonderful husband and 3 great children who are good kids.  It was a beautiful day out and the summer sun felt good.

Birthdays seem to be coming faster the older I've gotten, which I don't really understand but will take it, considering the alternative, ha, ha.

How do you celebrate your birthday?  Do you really celebrate or have a quiet birthday? 


  1. Happy Birthday to you Gloria! The flowers are beautiful. Great that you got to go our with your Mom. Have a wonderful time with your sister and I must agree with you, time goes by more quickly as we age. Then again, even the young kids are saying time seems to be going by super quick anymore. Enjoy your special day!

  2. Thank you so much Sandy! I really appreciate your kind comments!
