Well I'm officially 37 now. I don't know how it happened but it did. I do have to say that my 37th birthday was the best birthday thus far. My family and friends showered me with gifts and signs of love.
Thursday night at church we had cake for my birthday. Hannah made her first birthday cake and it was so good. She made the frosting and everything and it meant so much to me.
I had breakfast and coffee in bed thanks to my sweet baby. He got me a new watch, which was just what I wanted since I lost my other one somewhere in town. Now just any watch but the really nice one I wanted. Love it!!!
When Ljubica, Bro. Riches wife arrived to tutor the kids she brought be a lovely bouquet of Freesia. First time knowing what Freesia was and they smelled like sun light. The most beautiful smelling flowers ever. It's amazing how you can leave one country and family only to find new family in a far away land. Bro. Rich and Ljubica and truly family. I'm so blessed to know them.
Then the children presented me with a lovely silver heart locket with their photo inside. It means so much to be loved by your children. Not just an obligatory love but a true love.
I went out to greet the mailman and he had a yellow slip for me which meant that I had received a package for America, I was so excited because I knew it was my birthday present from my best friend Amanda. Yes, I'm 37 and I have a best friend. Best friends aren't just for children. Hey if you find a best friend in life you're truly blessed. Anyhow, the package was full of Bath & Body Works goodies which is what I love. Also she sent me a long jean skirt, I can't even tell you how much I needed that skirt. It's impossible to find long, modest, jean skirts here in Croatia and I had worn all my old ones out. Anyhow she made a run to Cato and they had one. Only 1 skirt but one is better than none. I'm thankful for that one but sure wish Cato had an online website.
Then we (Johnny and I) headed to the capital to the national theater to see Cinderella. It was glorious and the music was unbelievable. We sat on the front row right behind the orchestra pit and it was so good. I am in love with the theater now and can't wait to return. I'm thinking an Opera would be nice.
Today at church my friend Željka brought me a really sweet bracelet she made for me. I means so much to be remembered.
God has been so good to me and one of His greatest blessings to me is the people He has placed in my life. I'm so blessed!!
