Another Year Older~but what about wiser?

Yesterday was my birthday! Happy 41 to me but am i any wiser than I was 15 years ago? OMG I sure hope so. My husband doesn't know how to keep secrets but he kept a good one this time. I wanted to spend the day with my family and do a birthday meal with them and I made arrangements with my two best friends to spend an afternoon together soon doing what we like to do~stamping and talking. But without me knowing my Honey arranged for my 2 friends and their family to meet up at my house at 7pm to eat cake. OK~he let the cat out of the bag that morning when he came in with 2 10 layer cakes(Chocolate on chocolate and a keylime). No my friends do't have huge families ~ he couldn't decide what everybody would prefer to eat so he bought 2! My Mama came over early in the afternoon to eat cake and wish me Happy Birthday! Then to have my friends and their family that night!Last night as I sat looking around my den at my friends and listening to all the kids playing outside~I realized how truly blessed God has made my life. My Husband, my kids, my mama, and my friends. With those individuals and God on myside ~ I am one of the luckiest people I know. Fifteen years ago, I didn't have all of those people in my life ~I have trully been blessed! So please enjoy some birthday cake!
