A Big Bouquet of Thanks!


Thanks, Donna and Brandon...

..and to everyone else who made my birthday celebration a complete joy! Blog friends, family, work friends, synagogue friends and friends from every assorted part of my life -- fifth grade, college, high school youth group...You have all spoiled me madly and I am so grateful. Thank yous are coming -- email or mail and that is my goal for the next week. For blog friends, I want to stop by on everyone's blog who visited. At the rate I'm going this may take a good week, but please do expect a visit. My google reader shows 345 unread posts, so I have some work to do to catch up. But it's very happy work and I look forward to visiting. 

Today I return to real life. After the sugar deluge of the last few days I am back to yogurt and salads and I even have baby spinach to put into my smoothie. I did get in my half mile daily -- two miles yesterday -- and I am happy to be keeping up with the Challenge. The heat is much more manageable, which makes walking much more pleasant.  Today is laundry, groceries, walk and making a little less chaos at home. 

Again, many, many thanks to all for your birthday wishes and lots of hugs!

Good Morning Buttercup Sweetie...
What a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I could smell the fragrance before I even saw them. They are just gorgeous my friend, like you.

I am sending you a BIG virtual hug this morning, and smiling thinking of all the fun we had with Marydon and Harold. I can't wait until we see each other again.

You have touched my life in more ways than you will ever know. You are jewel in everyone's crown that you touch. What a beautiful soul you are, and I am so privledged that you call me Friend. I love you sweet friend.

Have a gorgeous day today, and I look forward to so many more of your celebrated birthdays.

I love you, Sherry
