It's my _?_ birthday!

Arriving at work today, this is how I found my office. It is so pretty! I love the balloons, streamers, and suspended poster. Taped to my computer and one of my picture frames were balloons. My office mates know me well. They know I love it decorated! They gave me a very nice card that was signed by everyone in the company.

During the morning, I got to talk to Rachel, Josiah, Annika and William. That was really fun. They had sent me some nice gifts that arrived yesterday. Josiah and Annika had personalized a wonderful "Grandma" book, so it was enjoyable to talk to them about it. Thank you!!

In the afternoon, I met Peder, Sarah, Aurelia, Felix and Leo at a park not far from my home. Thankfully, Peder and Sarah had found an area with a big umbrella cover over it, which is where Leo and I stayed, while Aurelia and Felix played on all the equipment, not minding the heat one bit. Those kids are awesome! When we had had enough heat, we went to a nearby Dairy Queen to cool off a bit with a cold treat, and then went to my home for awhile, the kids playing with a few toys and also playing my piano. It was all very nice. Oh, and they treated me to dinner. Thank you!!

This evening I have gotten to speak to Hans and Chad, Heidi and Marshall. Add this to the many birthday cards and gifts I got in the mail and on my computer, this makes my birthday a very special day. I am feeling celebrated and blessed. Thank you!
