Special People

As many blog readers know, this past week I celebrated a major milestone birthday.

As years advance, "things" that mean the most to me are not the gifts held in the hand, but those that linger in the heart and memory. 

That said, it was heartwarming to receive both cards and phone calls from longtime friends living in other states, including former co-workers, who have become friends over the years. They really made my day even more special.
These birthday cards replaced holiday greetings which filled the fireplace mantel thru the month of January. The below shelf of cards were from Grenville and one included a frog. Of course, my favorite was the center card. Can you tell we like giving cards ?





Some cards included helpful (and useful) birthday "advice" . . .
Others had beautiful flowers with lovely messages, outside and inside . . . 


There were the lovely flowers sent from my NJ friend Dori (the Cuz). Our special friendship was described in this post.

I'm grateful and thankful to be remembered by so many Special People in my life.

So why do all of my cards appear juvenile????? To help you forget it was a "milestone Birthday".
Remember, if if folks tell you to act your age you must be thinking and acting, and living YOUNG!!!!!!!
Just like we do.....
Your Grenville

a very very belated but happiest birthday month wish! You sure did receive a whopping dose of good wishes and cards. Wonderful, and keep celebrating. I have not had time to blog or read up much lately. I am spending time frivolously or at the Y working out which consumes most of the morning. going ad coming and stopping at the grocery store afterwords...time flies on. Happy birthday wishes.
