Maybe God wishes to teach me a thousand new things, move me from being in a thousand different directions to just ONE, and show me a thousand reasons to BLESS his name. Maybe that is why He moved me 1,000 miles away.

Birthdays

Birthdays are best when...

  • a seven year old girl tries to wake up earlier than mom to suprise her with breakfast
  • enormous cards filled with loving words are presented
  • home-made gifts are given along with hugs and warm smiles
  • strange birthday song traditions live on for yet another year
  • lunch is eaten at a delicious italian restaurant...no kids...and it's pouring rain outside
  • you know that this is the last year left in your 30's
  • baby takes a nice, long nap.

    It was a good birthday.

Happy Birthday!!!

So are you telling us that ZOOM found you all the way in PA!? I'm wondering if this ZOOM was slightly shorter (but not much) than you?

Ahhh, ZOOM, I remember that! I miss ZOOM! (that was its name, right?)

Hey hey!! It's good to be back on the old familiar blog! That tree picture below is cool, and I like the way you so gently described your lost in the woods experience.:)

You know how to party hard, Kerri.

Sounds like those great kids gave you a lovely day. I can only guess where the odd song talent came from...

Best wishes for a memorable thirty-something finale!
