Toni’s Tuesday:) More Celebrations and a Montage

15 Jan

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

~ Marcel Proust

The great thing about having so many wonderful friends is there are SO MANY birthday celebrations. January should be proclaimed Toni-uary. I’m still getting birthday cards in the mail and good wishes on Facebook.

The girls invited me for a birthday lunch that was several weeks in the planning. It’s a little more difficult to get five busy people together for one afternoon. Today was the day.

The photographer wasn’t in the photo, so thank you Sherri Murphy for taking all the photos. (Older photo)

After opening presents, having cake, sharing stories, our usual three hour lunch came to a close.

When I got home, there was a package waiting for me at the front door. A gift from my California boy, Matt. He usually sends me flowers, but this year I requested that just a phone call or card would be fine. If he wanted to send a gift, perhaps something that his momma could remember or use for a long time. I love it! Look what I got…

The celebrating wasn’t over. My three year old granddaughter asked daddy to call Gamma so we could FaceTime. I love these little faces.

After a lovely call, I scooted over to church for the St. Gabriel’s Women’s Club monthly meeting. It was Bingo night.

I certainly have the greatest friends, and the greatest life. My soul blossoms.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
