Today is my birthday. Yep, 51! Can you believe I'm that old? I can't either. My husband and some friends threw me a suprise birthday party last night. I got some lovely gifts and the company rocked! But...I just wanted to tell everyone how blessed I am with friends. I have had great friends my whole life. Friends that stick by me no matter what. Blogland recently reminded me that not every one has that gift. Not everyone knows what being a real friend even means. I am one lucky woman to know the joy of having great friends and I just wanted to thank those of you who I count amoung that group! I was lucky enough to meet some blog friends earlier this year, (Jen, Moneik, Cindy..that's you) and got to add to that number some more great friends. Life is good and God has blessed me in so many ways....how could I not share that?
On the quilty side of life, Garry got me a one of those new Simplicity fabric strip cutters and three...yep, count 'em....three new feet for my Sapphire. One is the walking foot I really wanted! Friends got me gifts ranging from jewelry to a lovely sweater. Another friend is really good at woodwork and he made me a lighthouse. Patti even got me Pioneer Woman's new cookbook! I'll take pics of all the loot and post them tomorrow.
I just want to say again that the best gift in life truly is friendship! Nothing compares. I'm even friends with my husband! Amazing, huh? So...as a birthday gift to me...hug a friend today!
