Several days ago I turned 75. I was born at home during the depression. I can remember when postage stamps were three cents, a loaf of bread was a dime, and the earliest I can remember, gas was 99 cents for regular. I made a lot of friends, and at my age, lost a few too many. All in the span of of a century. WOW!

One of the most important occurrences in my recent life was the meeting of Linda Arthur, who was to become my best friend on July 04, 2004. Most of my readers know I moved to Alabama to share living space with Linda, her son Jason, his wife Jennifer, most recently her grandson Garrett Wade, my cat and all their dogs.

Linda and the kids prepared my birthday dinner. I am quoting their birthday cards. I am not doing it just because they are pretty, but so you know how much I am loved, and therefore how contented I am.

God blesses us

With people who brighten our lives by taking time to listen and to care.
They really make a difference with their kind and helpful ways,
They see our needs and lift us up in prayer.

God blesses us

With people who always make us smile,
They share our happy moments and our tears,
Their gentle ways of giving make living more worthwhile,
And they keep growing sweeter through the years.
Special people like you are God's way of smiling at us.
Hope you enjoy a wonderful birthday.


The beauty of friendship is this ~~
It can not be made, described or measured
For it is a precious gift of the heart.
You give so much so often in so many special ways,
In loving words of comfort, in happy words of praise,
In taking time to talk a while, in trying to understand,
In sharing other people, in helping others when you can.
Your special way of giving love in everything you do,
Makes your gift the best of all,
The priceless gift of you.
Remember, God loves you and so do I.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for my new website
