January 20, 2010

Fatime turns the big 40!
Today is my birthday, and I am 40 years old. I do not feel any different than I did yesterday, and I praise God for every day that He sees fit to give me.
The birthday girls: walkers Karen and Fatime share the same birthday
I made a peach coffee cake for my walking group and my co-workers. There was enough for Logan to have when he came down for third lunch. He thought it was amazing! Jim came home with with two gifts for me: he got a haircut (which I have been asking him to do for a while) and flowers (red roses and pink tulips). We were a little late getting to Pastor's house for supper, but it was for a good reason. Adam called to wish me a happy birthday. He talked to me a bit and then wanted to talk to Jim. It was about 5:50 by the time we got to Pastor's, and it was time to get things ready for supper. The oven was already pre-heated, so Jim put the Papa Murphy pizzas in, and we made salads. The meal was simple but good.

So here we are around the table: Jim & Fatime, Brett

Logan, Pastor, and Katherine.

After supper everyone sang and we ate a delicious birthday cake compliments of Pastor Wangerin. I cleared the table while the boys fought over what cable TV show to watch, Jim looked at some political video on-line, and Katherine and Pastor played with the trains. Once everything was back to normal, we packed up and left for home.

What a wonderful birthday!
