Love is.../Blue Monday

I am very blessed with my phamily and my hubby is the best there is. He is feeling awful and has to work tomorrow because his co worker is off for the day. I think he needs an anti biotic and more rest. Say a prayer for him please. We are a thriving phamily. This little Love is...actually reminds me of the grandbaby. He loves to water my flowers although the watering can is bigger than he is! He wanted to water on Thanksgiving but I told him all the flowers are sleeping til Spring. He is quite the little man!

How about the December Blue Topaz gem stone for December? I have a lovely marquis cut ring my father gave me when I was 16. I need to bring it out and wear it. It is a lovely ring and I treasure it. I thought the blue topaz would make a good Blue Monday show! Tell Sally and the Blue Crew hi and check out lots of the great blues.

My early birthday celebration last night was great fun! Although my pretty tea cup cake was in green, purple , yellow and lavender I noticed a little blue on that plate! That 6 is a pretty shade of blue. Ah...another year older and although I have a creaky knee, a grumpy hip and other age related creaks and cracks I am generally in good health. I am thankful to God for His many blessings.

My middle daughter has all the photos she has not released to me yet but I received over 60 letters and cards with good wishes. It was amazing to read them and I will read them over and over. I was so excited when I started opening each individual card and letter. I am very blessed to have so many
wonderful people in my life.
There's my baby boy at Denver International Airport earlier today heading back to OKC and school in SW Kansas. He arrived safely wearing his skinny blue jeans and dark blue shirt. I miss him terribly and he returns December 13th. Say some prayers for him as he is having to take some really huge tests tomorrow and Tuesday.

Happy Night Before, Anne!
... I wonder, have you ever woken in the middle of the night (well, actually the wee hours of the morning) and quietly wished yourself a "Happy Birthday"?

Well, if I should open an eyeball at some ungodly hour, I'll be sure and send you a wish n' prayer!

Hope your tomorrow is perfectly lovely!
