HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR EDY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR EDY,
WE LOVE YOU TO PIECES.
INSTEAD OF A BIRTHDAY CAKE,
HERE'S REESE'S PIECES.

(You can tell I write for Hallmark Greeting Cards, can't you?)

All seriousness aside, we do wish you a wonderful birthday, dear friend. You were one of my very first friends when I walked into the foyer of Faith Writers and I'll never forget your warm greeting and warm hug. You've grown more dear to me each day.

MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
IS WHAT I WISH FOR YOU.
YOU'VE PASSED THE TEST
AND YOU'RE THE BEST.
MY GIFT IS A TATTOO !!

I can't top Mariane, so I'll just say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EDY! :birthday

Is it okay if I mention it's also my anniversary? Been married to my best friend for 21 years.

Happy Anniversary, dear Betty!! I can't think of any couple who is more suited to each other than you and Don. You're like a beautiful puzzle where all the pieces fit snugly and perfectly together. You complete each other.

I hope you have a wonderful day. You're both so deserving. I love you dearly.

I can't top Mariane and wouldn't try, but I would love to wish Edy the happiest birthday and Betty and Don a joyous anniversary.

I read the book Heaven Is Not Real, and I am never surprised at how God might choose to reveal himself to someone. His ways are greater than mine--and I see through a glass darkly.

May God bless you every one!

You folks have been partying, I see, and FaithWriters forgot to send me a notice! :cry: :cry: :cry:

I heard about the new baby via facebook, and learned that Betty celebrated her anniversary on my birthday - which is now the 2nd day of birthday. :P So much to celebrate takes more than a day! :superhappy

After all these years, I have now discovered my absolutely favorite birthday cake. One of my nieces brought me a treat...from Byerlys...a chocolate and fresh raspberry covered melt-in-my-mouth raspberry cheesecake. Swoon! That will now become my weekly treat as well.

If only I could fax a sample to each one of you to reconstitute on your end of the line (as BeachGrandma likes to do)! :lol:

Oh Edy, that's the kind of cake my son got for my birthday last fall. I am absolutely crazy about fresh raspberries which we had in abundance at my parents' home in upstate New York. Down here in the South it's too warm for raspberries to grow well so as you can imagine the price is sky high. The last time I looked they were $3.99 for one cup. At that price I don't buy them often. But with that chocolate and fresh raspberry cheesecake was such a hit on my birthday! I wish I'd thought to get one at Easter but maybe with Mother's Day coming up, I'll leave enough hints around the house on Post-It notes so someone is bound to get the message.

I just finished painting a cute egg that Betty ordered for her new great grandbaby. She wanted a Simba theme. I do hope she likes it. I wish I knew how to post a picture of the front and back, but alas, I still don't know how. I wanted to mail it this morning but I didn't have Betty's address so I'll send it Monday instead. Our P.O. here in this tiny village is only open for 2 hours on Saturday mornings.

I've been watching the series titled "Lost" on Netflix and can't pull myself away from it. There are so many episodes (121), each an hour long. It was shown on TV over a 6-year period and is by far the best series of its kind I've ever seen. The dialog is brilliant and so is the acting. I'm about half way through and already I'm dreading when it ends.

Well, it's lunch time. Off we go......

I'll have a piece of that cake, pretty please, Edy

Mariane made an egg for me to give to my sister for an early birthday present that Mary and I were both thrilled with. If you're looking for a treasure that's unique, personal , and lovely, you can't beat our dear Mariane's wonderful wooden eggs!

Well, I did it! I completed the Color Run 5K today!

I posted pictures here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=28672&p=528949#p528949

I didn't want to take up extra space on the forum by posting the pictures twice. :)

I was able to get in the first wave, so I didn't feel like I was lagging behind too much, except when people from what I'm sure were waves 2, 3, 4 and possibly 5 passed me. :lol: But I really didn't care that much. I finished!

I posted a few more on Face Book, and there will be at least a couple that I know the official photographers got of me. One because I purposely made eye contact with the finish line photographer and posed for him. THAT should be an interesting one.:lol:

A 5K 1 year, 2 months after hip replacement at age 29. Take THAT, medical issues!

And of course, all the glory is to God.

I want some of that cake, too. Love raspberries.

Thanks, everyone for the anniversary and new baby wishes. We are still so excited. Sometime today I'll post a photo of him here for those that didn't see him on Facebook. Even if you did, please indulge this first time great grandma.

I own a couple of Mariane's eggs, and they are very special. Can't wait to get the new one I ordered. I'll post a pic here when it comes.

Allison, good for you! I know you were looking forward to your run.

Time to get ready for church. Y'all behave.

Would you look at that baby smiling already!!! Sweetest little guy. I love his name - "Kai".
Is there a story behind that name, Betty? Its unusual and I really like it. I'd be honored if you posted a picture of the egg I painted for Kai. I think you'll like it. I'm going to put a couple of Mother's Day eggs on my Facebook Timeline tonight in case anyone wants to order one. My mother and my mother-in-law are both with Jesus so I don't have anyone to send any to.

I want to tell you all about the sweet phone call I got from my older son, Johnny, on Easter Sunday. Right now I need to help John fix something to eat.

I hope you've all had a good Sunday today.

Hugs
