The Royal Treatment

One of many Happy Birthday greetings waiting for me when I came out of the bedroom
My queenly crown
A quilted pillow I had begun over 20 years ago that my daughters completed (great job ladies!!)

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 new Food Saver (Thank you, VERY much Son)
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!!!)

So glad you had a royal day. It sounds like you saw first hand a bit of what Proverbs 31 talks about: 'Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her...' There is no greater gift than that! Blessings to you, dear one!

Well happy birthday to you! What a blessing to have such a thoughtful and loving family. And tell the hubby that I appreciate the camera too - I miss seeing picture of you!

I will be sure to let him know. I should be getting some photos of our garden this weekend, so I will get them put on next week.
