another year

today is just another day-

but, in my world...

it is a little bit special,
i am a bit partial 
to jan 28th...

it is my birthday-

and although this means 
i am another year older...
 the lines on my face
and the little grey hairs
on my head
all seem to be multiplying 
it is my day.

a day 
that usually means 
it feels just a bit brighter
and lovelier...

oh yes,
maybe even a bit of spoilin'

a nice dinner
& hopefully some
chocolate cake! ;)

although first thing i will be doing
will be heading to church to attend
a funeral for a dear, sweet man
from our church
is no longer in pain...
i will be saying goodbye until we meet again

then in the evening...
i will be going out to a nice steak dinner-

i am so very grateful for another year 
and so
very thankful for all my 

another year?
i hope this will be the year
to show more kindness,
to freely give of myself,
& 'walk my talk'
to never pass up an opportunity
to let my family and friends know
how much i love them...

may you be blessed with a sweet saturday
filled with all things lovely!

Happy Birthday, sweet friend.

I, too, enjoyed a nice birthday steak dinner this week. My hubby took me up to Canada.

Looks like it's time for us to go out for our Birthday Coffee Date. Let me know what works for you this week.
