TODAY I CELEBRATE ME


We celebrated my 65th birthday yesterday and we went out for a lovely brunch at TAPS.  It was a great time with my family and brunch was awesome. 



I now get to carry a Medicare card......

No doubt I am happy to be alive!

I am also thankful for all of God's blessings. 

I just wish I knew where the years went.....


Gorgeous flowers that Gabby and Adam brought to me.

 Copper Chef as seen on TV

A lovely John Lewis scarf from the UK

New Lap Desk which I asked for. 

Lovely ankle length kaftan from my mother in law.

Happy Birthday to you!! Looks like you received some nice gifts. We have the small copper pan and love it. I laughed when my husband and daddy wanted me to buy one; but I am pleasantly surprised that I love it!

Happy Happy Birthday to you Debby! May His blessings overflow. You were surrounded by love; what nice presents you received. So will you be taking medicare? I have six months until I am eligible, looking forward to less premiums.

Aw, Debby, happy birthday to you!!! Sounds like a great birthday. And isn't it wonderful that AARP and Medicare have been celebrating your birthday for months in advance. LOL

May God continue to bless you.

P.S. Isn't it odd, that your Medicare card (which they tell you to always carry with you) is the same number as your social security number (which they tell you NEVER to carry with you, but to keep in a safe place). Central planning. :-)

Somebody must have been a VERY good girl this year! (er, or is that Christmas?)

So neat to see you're celebrated by those you love. You'll have to let us know how that Copper Chef cookware works (please). I may want to get that for my DH!

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to you, Debby - the best is still to come - each day is a blessing and you are greatly loved. What wonderful gifts and admiration from your family! The first half of our lives seems to have flown by and we do indeed wonder where the time went...but this second half can slow down and be appreciated in a whole new way! :)
