Today I've reached that milestone. Apparently 55 is the speed limit birthday. Who knew? But that's what they're telling me on Facebook. It's going to be a very peaceful birthday--no party, no guests (just the dog), no presents and that's all right with me. I got to do 30 situps before the dog jumped me and decided we needed to run around in the garden. Ah, good times.
So in my quiet time I've decided to publish my Top Ten Most Wanted Birthday Gifts. This of course, will be the Not of This World List. LOL.
Top Ten BD Gifts
10. 50 lbs. of See's Candy (chocolate nuts and chews)
9. Hummer !!! A big YELLOW one with a black stripe on the sides
8. A Castle somewhere in England
7. A summer cottage in England near a river
6. A Cruise to anywhere
5. A Trip to Italy
4. To be a size 10 again

Here, I'll make it easy for you.
And Number 1. For my kids to be truly happy and to be extremely successful and to love God with all their heart because that will indeed bring true happiness and success.
There you have it. I am truly blessed with wonderful friends, and an amazing family. We have come this far, but the journey has miles to go and I'm glad you're with me on this path.
ps: Don't forget number 2. Just sayin'!!!!
My Scripture for the new year is Psalms 121:
A song of ascents (or The Traveler's Psalm)
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
