This past week I celebrated my 49th birthday. I always made a big deal out of other people's birthdays but not so much for my own. It really is, as an adult, just another day. Now I am not one of these women who gets all out of frame because I am another year older or reached a milestone birthday number. Who cares?? It is just that....a number. Turning 30 was no different than being 29. Turning 40...same thing. I am now 49....big deal. Next year I will be 50. Half a century. It really does not impact me all that much. I am happy and pleased to be getting older. I am healthy. I have a great family and I have wonderful, wonderful friends. Too many blessings! This year I did get something that was such a nice surprise. My dear friend Kelley has a birthday 2 days before mine and we always either go out to breakfast or dinner. We usually buy the other ones meal and that's that. This year we went to Olive Garden. I had a coupon. When I picked her up and drove to the restaurant we just chit chatted away. When we got there I said 2 for dinner and she just smiled and said...."Huneycutt party". Well, around the corner were all my friends from my ladies Bible study!!! I was so surprised! It was such a sweet time together. Just 8 middle aged ladies out for a great meal and some sweet fellowship. I just love my friends. The next night my 2 wonderful daughters took me out to eat. We went to Bonefish Grill. I had the crab cakes and they were wonderful. We had a marvelous time together, just the 3 of us. My daughters mean the world to me and I just love spending time with them. They have grown into such wonderful women and I could not be prouder. I truly just thank the Lord for my birthday and for the many, many blessings He just keeps heaping on my life.
