After opening my birthday gifts this morning I quickly got back into "reality"....site change, counting carbs, dosing for breakfast and making breakfast. While I was cooking J.J.'s eggs...thinking how blessed I am to have such a wonderful family....he came up to me, so excited and said, "I'm too happy!!" That was it. That's how I was feeling...too happy!! If there could be such a thing.
My kids all surprised me with gifts and cards after my breakfast date with hubby. I was overwhelmed by their generosity. They know me. My oldest quilting daughter spent a huge chunk of her well earned money to give me a quilt kit I had wanted. Now I just need to carve out quilting time!!:-) (Hint, hint!!) Hubby, parents, and my Hannah went in together to get me a slick new camera with accessories. Can't wait to play around with it!! I also got beautifully constructed cards from my talented daughters & son!!
The gifts that brought the biggest laughs, and "awe" factor were from J.J. Last week he came to my bedroom with my "wrapped" gifts. (He taped brown construction paper around everything!). I told him that he couldn't hide my presents in my bedroom....that wouldn't be good. So he took them to his room. His older sister didn't even know he had gotten me gifts. This morning I had the privilege of opening:
- A pile of "beautiful" rocks.
- A pair of brand new scissors(from MY stockpile drawer!)
- A jar with $1.31 in it.
I am too happy!! And the day is just starting!!
