What a Day

The poem on the back is: As Life's Plan Unfolds,
I am gifted with the understanding
of all you have been to my life....
I love you Mom

Inside the cup rim reads : The bonds we have are everlasting... Awwwwww is that sweet or what...







............I have the best birthday Friday ... I stayed in my comfy chair most of the day like the Dr. said... I have a great computer chair that my DH got for me a few weeks ago and it has a nice big heating pad on the back of the seat.. I keep it on high... so I am able to sit and work in my business and still do as the DR said...Some time around noon my sweet son Chris came by with a beautiful card and a pretty wrapped box... Inside was a beautiful coffee cup with Mother on the side of it and the perfect poem on the inside... It touched my heart.... He stayed and talk for over an hour before heading back to his demanding job.. what a treat that was.... my sweet DH came walking in an hour early from the University with a dozen roses, candy and a card that made me cry... ...

......We had time to sit and visit as I arranged my roses in a vase that I have had from the first bouquet of flowers that he sent me on May 23, 1999... Then time to dress and meet Chris and his girl at the Italian restaurant for dinner... We sat and laughed and I had Chicken Rebecca... It was so tasty.... then we did go to the Art opening for just a minute to see brother Paul and Alpha... We spent about 20 minutes with them and the young artist and then I need to head home to my comfy chair... I have lots of beautiful cards sitting on my side board and I am taking pictures.... It was a great day .. full of lots of love from those around me and those that live far away..... Thanks for all the lovely cards..... you bless my heart....
......I was invited out by Tisha and Harold .. Tisha is my cousin... more like a sister that I always wanted.... anyway... They invited us out to eat catfish on Saturday night but my back after Friday night was a bit stressed so took a rain check on the catfish...

Good Morning Denise,
Oh my, I love the beautiful roses your DH got you for your Birthday and the cup as well. That is so wonderful that you still have the first vase that he sent you flowers in to put the roses in. I love the coffee cup as well and you have some very beautiful cards. So glad you was able to go out and eat and enjoy the art show for a while. Now I am very curious as to what Chicken Rebecca is. LOL. I know it has to do with chicken, but what is the Rebecca about? LOL. I'm just a plain ole southern gal and don't know much about them fancy names. LOL. I'm sure when your back is better you will go out and eat some catfish. I do love me some catfish and all the trimmings, but it's been a while since I've had any myself. I'm so glad that Chris stopped by and had a visit with you. I know that made your day. Sounds like you had a great birthday. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
