Happy Birthday To Me.......

Update.......... We have had Dad taken to hospital in ambulance .. He has pneumonia. Thanks for your prayers....:






Well, today I am official Social Security! Checks start in May! WHEW!!!!!!!! There were times in my life did not know I would live this long.......... !! ha!


I am better today but in no wise able to go out......... My sweet hubby brought home movies last night for this weekend. A beautiful card was waiting for me when I finally got my self out of bed.......... Medicine seems to be kicking in and chest seems to be loosening up. I sound a lot worse than I am now......... Dad is very sick and we are watching him close. It will be ER for him today if he is not better, and they will for sure admit him.
I am very thankful for every birthday. There were years that I would cry and be depressed for days especially the 50.

Today I am thankful to the Lord for each day. The Lord blessed me with Dennis about 10 years ago now and the last ten years has made up for all the years before. How grateful I am to the Father God for 62 years of life.......... I will rejoice and be glad......... Thanks for all the prayers and I will take pictures of a couple of things that I have received this past week maybe tomorrow.:



I have taken my medicine for today and need my first breathing treatment now then another cup of coffee and it is off to my easy chair.

Love you gals a lot!

(I would share a piece of cake with EACH of you were you here!)

Sorry to hear about your dad. I'm praying you all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Praying for you & your dad -- get better soon. Sounds like I've got the same bug -- my voice is just about gone & I can feel rumbling in my chest. No fever any longer so hopefully I'm on the mend. It's depressing to be sick for so long (less than 1 week though). Keep us posted about your dad.
Oh and enjoy those gov't cheques! Been thinking about you this week -- wore my t-shirt! BTW, did you draw the foot pic that you had posted the other day? I laughed -- my wrists were so sore w/ this bug. Strange. D

I'm sorry that I missed your Birthday. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you were able to enjoy it a little bit.
Honey Bear is 7 years older than me. The other day we were talking about how healthy he is. He said he wanted to live long enough for me to be able to draw social security. I told him, I wanted him to live a lot longer than that. He has a very good job and he is thought very highly of by the younger guys. I believe he'll be able to work as long as he wants and is able. He always said he'd retire at 70, but I'm not sure he will.
My 60th is coming up and I'm musing on what I might want to do to celebrate.
Love you and hope you're feeling better today and that Mom and Dad are too.

Sweet Denise, I am so far behind in visiting with my friends and have some catching up to do here. First off, let me begin to tell you happy belated birthday and yippie you are getting your soc. sec. monies. That is a nice little gift for turning 62, which is very young! My friend, Wave, just turned 62 and is now receiving her checks which she likes.

I am off to do more reading...

God Bless You,
Becky
