My Actual Birthday

Well, you're right, as some comments say I'm falling apart & I don't remember anything, but it all starts here, today, now! I've had such a great day, family friends cake cuddles & cards...flowers & some yoga & great food.

Todays card is from Laura at Shine the Divine in NH, USA. This is my first photopostcard & it is just wonderful, I  love it! This is a beautifully rusted guard rail & Laura saw it & thought of me. On the back of the card are these words

May you be blessed with kindness.
May you be blessed with compassion.
May you be blessed with joy.
May you be blessed with peace...

all the days of your life.

gentle steps,

Laura






To be thought of, with meaning, from so far away; I am honored. Thank you so much.


My next card is from Joyce at  WV, USA from Calico Paint It is so bright & colorful & yet subtle, blended at the same time. I love her little hand drawn birds & the gold relief dove with an olive branch, so sweet.



With the olive branch in a little piece of heaven, I feel hopeful, thank you so much.

There were some more great bits & pieces to play with later, too, you shouldn't have!



It all came in a brightly decorated envelope with more lovely birds! The post will never be the same after I stop receiving all these cards!




Oh, I will :)

Earlier my parents were remembering this day 50 years ago, hard to believe I was their little baby; again, I am honored & this has really been the best day I could have. Thank you  for being here with me.

Can you tell I'm feeling a little emotional?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
I turned 50 last December and I love it because it is my *free ticket* to do and say what I wish!!! (well, I did that before too....haha!)
Seriously, I think women take it harder than men and we shouldn't.
So have a VERY, VERY GOOD ONE!!!

XXOO!!
Anne

Happy Birthday Emma!

Welcome to the club. I'm sorry my post card didn't reach you in time for the big day but at least you have something to look forward to in your "old age!"

Best wishes and many happy returns.
