Thankful Thursday – It’s My Birthday!

courtesy of photobucket: jade95_2010

Well, today is my birthday. And I had a wonderful day. I didn’tΒ  have any big celebration (we are not a big celebration kind of family) – I just stayed home and did what I wanted to do.

  • I took a long morning nap
  • I stayed in my pjs all day long (you never know when you need to jump back into bed for an emergency nap!)
  • we took a school easy-day
  • I didn’t cook (thanks kids!)
  • I got a Subway for supper (thanks Elizabeth for going to the store since I am still in my jammies)
  • I spent a nice long time in prayer
  • we put away all the winter jackets, boots, hats, scarves and gloves (I LOVE getting them all gone)
  • I got to spend some time online
  • I spent time alone in my room and read a book
  • I got to chat with friends, IRL and online – LOTS of fun
  • I had an online party with some SWEET FRIENDS

I’m so thankful for my life and all the blessings God has showered on my life. Thanks, Lord, for the opportunity to live another year to serve You and glorify You!!

    Thank you for linking up to First Day of My Life’s Thankful Thursday!
    Morning nap…how delicious! What book are your reading? HUGS

    • Thanks Cami! I had a wonderful relaxing day! But lots of work to do today (along with some fun time with the children and my husband).

      I tend to re-read books (older novels) because that way, when I fall asleep after reading 2-3 sentences, I don’t get too lost! Also, they all sound so familiar, if I skip a paragraph or page (while drifting off to sleep) I don’t miss much! Right now I’m reading (possibly for the 3rd time in 27 years) a book by Dick Francis…I’m not into horses but I love his racing stories.

      Have a wonderful day, sweetie!!

  5. Happy Birthday! Sounds like a WONDERFUL day! Friends, family…. RELAXING! A day spent in PJ’s is a day spent in Heaven in my book. Have a super blessed year πŸ™‚
