marked a major milestone for me, my birthday. I would have liked to have taken the day off
but duty called. I did get up early, had my devotions in our roof top
garden, and, after dropping Matthew off for school, met
up with a friend to go walking in the countryside for 30 minutes.
Mayotte cooked grilled beef, cheesy scalloped potatoes (amazing how
cheesy the package from the mac & cheese box can be) and salad. We
put the cake together together (is that proper English? )
and Felix, Matthew and I had a family dinner together. My brother
called and, after trying his French out on me, managed to sing “Happy
Birthday” to me before we got cut off . Then, as I was trying
to blow out my candles, my parents called, sang “Happy Birthday” and
the line went dead again. I guess they got the most important part
said. Kind of hard to celebrate the way I would have liked with no
fancy restaurants, movie theaters or nice hotels around but what’s most
important anyway??? Health, Family and the Lord. I am blessed with
all three. PTL!
These are some SHORT clips (Felix thought he was taking pictures instead of videos). I like the one with me on the phone listening to my mom singing while I’m trying to blow out the candles before they set the cake on fire! LOL!
