Today is my Birthday!!


You know that song by the Beatles- "Today is your Birthday"? I always sing that song to myself on my special day. Lots of years ago when I was a Broadcast major at Northwest Missouri State University my friends all got together and requested that song for me. Since I was on the campus radio station and knew everyone that worked there it was fun having my friend Tony dedicate that song to me. I think I recorded it but don't know where it is.

I LOVE Birthdays:) I consider them to be the start of my very own personal New Year. Today after church I'm gonna sit down and write out all that I'm grateful for. I'm gonna scrap it so I can remember it always. Then I'm sit down and come up with 10 new Birthday goals for myself. I've done this now for the past 15 years and look forward to it each year.

No major plans today. I'm off to church meetings this morning then I teach the little ones in Primary. I'm Primary President. I'm putting a turkey in the crockpot for my dinner and having mashed potatoes, too. Instead of cake we're having mini banana splits with Redi Whip!! Gonna treat myself today then got back on my plan Monday. Hopefully my Mom and Roger will come over then the kids and I are gonna play a few games and watch a family movie. It's gonna be rainy here all day which is fine with me.

I have much to be thankful for today.

I knew it was your birthday today but i was at a different ward. So i didn't get to say in person "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!" I love you, Les. I am so glad i have gotten to know you. You are a source of constant optimism. You are generous and humble. Oh, and i think you are beautiful outside and inside. I hope your upcoming year is the best one yet.

Les! I was thinking about you on our birthday! Amber Galbraith said that she brought over brownies....I am so sad I missed the brownies! I am hoping that Justin and I can come up to Maryville when we get back! I am new at the Blog thing so mine doesn't look very good, but yours is very cute. Hope all is going well!
