Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Despite my headache, it was an altogether lovely day. I got to teach the youth girls' Sunday School (a rare treat...I just fill in for the regular teacher), worship with R & CJ, have lunch and dinner with my closest friend & her family, and even got a nap in between!
More highlights of the day:
~CJ's homemade card that read "Thank you for feeding me, taking care of me, and so on." With a preteen in the house, there's a LOT of "and so on" going on!
~R didn't buy me a card, but said, "This day, 41 years ago, was the best day of my life." *SWOON*. My heart still skips a beat just thinking about it! He's romantic, AND he bakes! My strawberry cake was wonderful. Oh, the Lord blessed me with such a family!
Nothing much else going on here. The house is a mess, and I've been too tired to deal with it. Besides, I was glued to American Idol last night. This is my favorite season. I'm having a hard time picking a clear winner, though I adore Danny. And just WHAT was that Adam did last night? If Johnny Cash were still alive, he would've had a heart attack on the spot! Disturbing what that guy did to the classic Ring of Fire.
R is leaving for a 2-week business trip on Sunday. I'm thankful he'll return for the weekend in between. I'm not sure I could handle it if he didn't.
I haven't forgotten your questions. In fact, I'll answer one of Jill's right now.
What's in YOUR CD player?
At the moment, a solo trax version of Mercy Me's Jesus Bring the Rain. I haven't gotten up the gumption to tell our choir director I'd like to sing it, though.
Another of Jill's questions (she had MANY!) Do you remember the first "chapter" book you read? If so, what memories do you have about it?
I honestly can't remember the FIRST chapter book. Probably the one that stands out to me is Little House on the Prairie. (I read that before Little House in the Big Woods). I remember thinking that Laura was so lucky to go on such a great adventure. And it made me wish my Daddy played the fiddle.
I'll answer more soon. I like stretching this out!
Hope y'all have a good Wednesday.
