I had a birthday this week and received the royal treatment. My daughters made Happy Birthday signs and put them all around the house. They made me a crown to wear all day, so I would feel like a queen. The banished me from the kitchen and fixed all my meals and snacks for the day (they even did a pretty good job of cleaning up too:) They made me a blueberry cheesecake that tasted wonderful. They found a quilting project that I had started over 20 years ago and finished for me and gave it to me as a gift. One of them also made me a cloth bag to put some of my hand work in (I am always looking for something to put my projects into). They made me a beautiful card with photos of me as a baby, a teenager and one when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, they were very creative.
My husband and son are very practical (which is one of the things I LOVE about them). My husband bought me a stick blender and camera (both of which we really needed). My son bought me a new Food Saver (the last one he bought me died from using it soooooo much). I received a very nice email from my oldest daughter in CA. So the day was a very wonderful day, even if I did turn a year older. I am thankful for my family and their thoughtfulness.
Now we can take more photos (Thank you, Honey, you are the BEST!!!)
