WHAT a wonderful world

I got a funny feeling in my stomach when I saw a comment on my blog "came over from Darnell's".  Uh oh, better go check it out. I gasped.  I ran up to get Mom to come have a look.  I scrolled to the linky thingy and cried.  No shit.

Ladies, I am on vacation celebrating my big 50.  YEP BIG 50.  (Now it's out there.) I just had the most incredible weekend in Frankenmuth, MI with seven best buddies from college - and yep, that was a few years ago - and then I think about how my word for 2014 was "hello", as in "face time with friends over a glass of wine" and how that is happening and it's only March.  AND THEN I see the beautiful birthday cards you lovelies created for me and I can't believe how wonderful this world is.

I am just so darn happy!

And on my way out to lunch with Mom and Dad so I gotta go.  But I will be back to admire all your beauties and consider yourselves hugged.  As in, big giant hug.
