Birthday Fun and Friends

From the moment I got up yesterday I could tell it was going to be a good day to have a birthday! The sun was shining, and the birds were chirping, and I was feeling good!
My husband was off helping a friend, so I decided to shower, put my hair up in with clippy things, dress, and go play! (Of course I had to wear my feel good color PURPLE)
So first I went to see my friend Myrna at Keepsakes and Treasures...she is both a keepsake and a treasure to me and has been my friend for over 30 years! She gave me a silver peridot ring, and a silver cross pendant, and the sweetest handmade card that our friend Cheri Hill makes. They are such beautiful cards and on the back she puts her "Hillmark"! (Not Hallmark) Myrna and I had fun taking pictures together like friends in a photo booth. We giggled and kept taking them until we got one we liked.
Then I went over to Roadhouse Antiques to see my friend Rodgie. She's such a sweetie and I love her long layered hair. (I'm gonna copy it when my hair gets long enough tee hee) Rodgie had asked me to come over cuz she had a gift for me. She gave me a lovely shawl/scarf, and a little antique rhinestone pin shaped like a flower, and the sweetest card. We had over an hour of conversation and hugs, and laughter, and we took some pictures together too.

I got several phone calls from family and friends, as well as cards, emails and facebook greetings, and blog comments. My daughter Lynnette kidnapped my blog for the day and told all of her followers and mine about it being my 60th birthday, so many of you blessed me with special comments and birthday wishes. It was like a shower of love raining down on me! So... thanks so much for making my birthday a special one.

My honey returned and he took me out to dinner and then we just came home and relaxed. Today my daughter Lisa is treating me to a movie! So the birthday fun continues. And then next Saturday we will do a family party for myself, a 7 year old grandson, and a 15 year old grandson at Lynnette's house and she is making homemade pizzas! (They are so yummy)

Turning 6o wasn't bad at all...and especially when a friend told me that 60 was the new 40 !

Have a great day...and remember: His mercies are new every morning!

It sounds like a BEAUTIFUL day! So glad you were blessed with such a great birthday!
Extended partying is always the best!
I would NEVER guess you to be 60, you look beautiful are radiant! Definitely no older than 29...hehe...but then that would make Lynetter like what? 15. HAHAH!
Much love to you!

I am so glad that you had a great birthday! Although, I still can't believe that you are 60! Your quiet and gentle spirit radiates such joy and contentment that you look decades younger! I was reading Proverbs 31 and one passage jumped out and said "Linda!" to me:
"25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."

Hope every day is just as special as your birthday.
