Will You Still Need Me?

Yesterday was my birthday. Can you figure out how old I am? :o)

Here's a hint:

Ron took me out to dinner and told me that yes, indeed, he still loves me. I'm not a huge Beatles fan, but I always liked the line about "grandchildren on your knee, Vera, Chuck and Dave." I always knew grandchildren would make me happy. :o) Ron also gave me a beautiful CD of ancient hymns.

Kelly was here yesterday. She cleaned the powder room and took me to Milberger's. I had mentioned that I wanted to get some mums for the front porch and she got them for me for my birthday. What a honey!

She picked up the turkey she ordered and stashed it in my fridge. It looks delicious! Josh is also making a brisket, since the turkey is not as large as usual, and we all love to have leftovers. Mmm, brisket! Mmm, smoked turkey!

I received birthday wishes from all of my kids yesterday. Jason called while we were at dinner to wish me a happy birthday, and Josh brought Reece over to spend the night and they both wished me happy birthday when they came in. Reece wanted to know where the cake was. :o) He can't imagine a birthday without birthday cake. I told him we would have my birthday cake on Thanksgiving.

Oh wow, I'm sitting here writing about my birthday and the doorbell just rang. There was a flower delivery man on the porch. My sister and BIL sent me flowers! How sweet. Thank you, Mike and Johnnie! They are gorgeous.

My sister Sandi is at Mom's. They are making pies today. I haven't seen her yet. They had gone to get some lunch when Ron and I stopped by there on the way back from the hospital earlier, so we just left Mom's meds and came on home. I'll see her tomorrow.

I had an appointment for an echocardiogram this morning, to see if the chemo did any damage to my heart. I'm thinking no damage. :o) It is interesting to see your heart working on the computer screen.

Okay, I'd better get off the computer and get something done around here. If I don't get back before tomorrow, I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving!

If I'm reading that correctly then we're the same age (until I turn 65 New Year's Eve)

Happy Birthday and Happy Thanksgiving, Kalona

You read it right, Adrienne. Sometimes I forget how old I am and have to ask Ron. :o)

Thank you for the birthday wish. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and eat as much as you want.

Tell your hubby my order is on its way. I kept forgetting to mail it.

Thank you, Jennifer! I do remember that you told me how special birthdays would be to me from now on. When I woke up that morning, I thanked God for letting me live to see another birthday. Life is very precious.

Your comment and birthday song made me smile. :o)

I'm sorry I missed your birthday. Too much going on.
I often forgot how old I was, but since my last birthday--oddly enough-- my present age clangs around in my head like a noisy gong. :)Blessed belated birthday.
