Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!

Good Morning!!!

Thank you all for your wonderful birthday wishes!!

You sure know how to make a gal feel great!! 
I am so blessed by your loving, caring, hearts!!

I am sharing my gorgeous birthday blooms with you today!!

My lovely friend Nellie just showed up at my door midday on Sunday
with these beautiful flowers for my birthday! 

She stopped by one
day IN THE POURING RAIN and brought me a smoothie
called a "Chocolate Elvis" just to make my day!
And of course it did!!!

Nellie knows how much I love daisies and looked for a bunch that
was FULL of them...I put them in a creamy white vintage pitcher
and they greet me each morning on my breakfast nook table!!

Daisies to me are really just God's smile in a flower!!
They NEVER fail to cheer me~~~
Especially when they are an act of love from a wonderful
loving, encouraging friend like Nellie!!!

She also designs her own greeting cards and made this pretty one for me!
If you haven't met Nellie yet...she is a blogger too and you can find her
at Nellies Cozy Place!  I hope you'll go meet her!!

Today she is preparing a special birthday lunch for me!!
YIPPEE!!  She is full of hospitality, too! 
Can't wait!!


Another lovely bloggy friend is also a good friend of mine,
(please go meet her too, if you haven't yet,)
and later in the day she stopped by bearing birthday wishes
and this pretty bag of goodies!!

Jess is also full of surprises! When I was at a wedding a week ago
Saturday she dropped by and brought a petite
tea cup full of chocolates by for me to enjoy!!
Thanks Jess...they were yummy and sure made Emily's eyes
light up!!

I love this bag...the blooms and the dragonfly!!
And here are the delightful things inside!

Jess knows I LOVE birds and has blessed me with several
including this little beauty!  It is on our console with this adorable
little pot of silk geraniums.  She covered all the bases, by adding in
chocolate, a fragrant candle and the blue crystal dragonfly!!
Thank you Jess!!

The rest of my birthday was wonderful hubby
made an awesome fresh redfish (caught by him!) dinner complete with
homemade hushpuppies...Mmmmm!

And my gift from the girls and him is the money to purchase a new
camera!!  My grandy Emily dropped mine last year, and it just
isn't functioning properly.

I will be shopping soon and will show you what I get!

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME as I am having an echo cardiogram
tomorrow, an EMG and nerve conduction test on Monday,
and a stress test on Wednesday!!

The heart ones are because of an irregular EKG when I went for
my appendix.  The Dr. doesn't think it is anything, but has to check!

We really think all of this is for nothing...but please pray anyway!!

Thanks for sharing in my birthday JOY!
Gotta go get ready to go to Nellie's!!

Big Squishy Hugs!!

  3. Praying for you Birthday Girl! For calmness and that all the tests will have good results.

  4. Don't stress about the tests. You are going to be fine. Piece of cake. :)

    You are one lucky girl getting all those wonderful goodies for your birthday. Love the pitcher the flowers are in! Awesome! I'm so glad you had a FAB day with Randy and the girls.

    Here's to a FAB today!

    You are blessed with the sweetest friends. What a treasure. I haven't made good friends like this in Tampa yet. Blessings to you and your family.

  6. I holidayed in YOUR sun a bit this afternoon. We've not had so much up here lately!

    I'm blessed by the overflow of YOUR birthday blessings. Rejoicing for Christian friendships and praying for God's touch of grace on your body and its needs, I'm PROUD to share your name :)

  7. I am so glad that your birthday was so amazing! Looks like your friends really made you feel special.

    I am praying about all your other test, Becky. He is a huge God and I know you are safe in His arms.

  8. Ahh Becky it is so wonderful to have such loving friendships and family! I am so glad you had a blessed day! I will say a special prayer for you. Let's keep thinking that the tests are just because and not for anything major! Be sure to give us the results as soon as you receive them! hugs and smiles...

  9. I am so glad you had a wonderful birthday celebration. Those hush puppies sounded so good. I got a mix to make them but haven't yet. Rich has had them but not me. I will be praying for your tests to all come out good. Take care dear friend!

  10. Hey Sweetie,
    I'm home from my conference and wondering how you are? Will be praying for your tests. The echo cardiogram is fascinating and doesn't hurt. YEAH!
    Let me know how they go.
    Love in the Lamb,
