It is my birthday!! DSC_0038

I woke up to many hugs and kisses this morning.  It is these simple acts of goodness and kindness that makes one’s life beautiful and meaningful.photo-b6

My three children each created handmade birthday cards for me. To be honest, children do give us our share of headaches many times throughout the year (or throughout the day….), but during special days like your own birthday, you realize that they are the world’s greatest treasures.photo b9

So I feel blessed on my birthday that I have beautiful, healthy, kind, loving and thoughtful children.  May you all cherish your own children, nephew, nieces, godchildren……


So on my birthday, ‘may the fourth be with you!”
