Happy Birthday To Me!

This day back in the year 1969, is the day that I was born.

And since I am still on bed rest (with good hair), Shannon and I will not be able to go anywhere to celebrate, so we will ring in my 39th year of living right here at home.

Hopefully, we will have a little birthday cake that looks something like this one does. You know, something simple. :)

After eating a romantic dinner (that Shannon prepares) by candle light, and stuffing ourselves full of birthday cake, I hope that we can curl up on the bed together, and watch anything with Mark Wahlberg a good movie.


Then last, but certainly not least, I want Shannon to slow dance with me to one of our favorite old love songs. (Of course, I can't really slow dance with this bad foot of mine, but a girl can dream on her birthday, can't she?) ;)


If all goes according to plan, this birthday will be another favorite memory of mine.:)

And Kenny, thank you for making my birthday a special one. I love you, Friend! I will be posting about your visit last night soon (with more pictures and less words, of course.) ;)

And last but not least, to Dianne, thank you for making the new blog header for my birthday! I love it.
Going to the Mediterranean and getting to write my name in the sand was a really special thing for me to do, so thank you for making the memory of it even more special. You are a treasure! :)

Just one more thing, tomorrow morning, Shannon is taking Allie back to the vet to see if the heart medication he put her on is working, and to decide what to do about repairing her torn ACL. So if you feel led to, please pray for her. Shannon and I appreciate all of your prayers so much.

Yippiedo!! Happy Birthday to you!!
I hope your day is fabulous! I come watch a movie with you!?!?! lol said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MY SWEET BABY GIRL!!!!!! It's hard to imagine that the years have flown by--I remember the day like it was yesterday--I got up that morning to go pee--my water broke on the toilet, so I knew it was time! I told your Dad so he got all nervous and got in the VW to go down the corner store to get cigarettes which of course he had to have - my goodness what would he have done without them - THEN, he WALKED home! Then he had to WALK back to the store to get the car so that we could head to the hospital!!! :)
As I was sedated by twilight sleep (which was the drug of choice at that time!) I was awakened by a nurse who said, "Mrs. Ayers, you've had your baby." And I looked at this little precious red, scrunched up face, and said "What did I have?" and she said, " A little baby girl!" My dreams came true!! And then unfortunately due to being drugged (UGH), I fell back asleep!!!! But I was so happy!!! ME AND DAD AND JOHN LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING!!!!! Have a wonderful day! :)
Love forever, Mom

I forgot...
I love Merle Haggard and love "My Favorite Memory." Thanks for sharing that. It brought back memories.

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

Anybody that chooses "Merle" for part of her birthday blog has my admiration! Sure better than Mariah.

Happy Birthday, dear one! What a celebratory week at your house. I love that your bloggie friend came by for some bed rest. That's awesome. And yes, I love your new header. So many changes going on over here. Sorry I don't get over as often as I should.

10 days until the start of school. Maybe life will slow down a bit, but I doubt it.

May God grant you his favor, rest, healing, and blessing in this new year you've been given. Write it well, my friend. Untold horizons await your pen.

Blessed and Happy Birthday Friend! Thanking God today for the gift of you!

I want you to know how tickled I get reading your blog. I KNOW we would have a blast together.

Prayers for your sweet Allie.

Liz said...

Happy birthday dear Ames,
Happy birthday to you.

Since it's your birthday I will forgive you for not giving us an advance warning of such. I could've had a dancin' gorilla come to your door!

I love that cake. You should try for it as long as the flip flops are edible. Hmmm...edible flip flops.

Will pray for Allie girl.

Have a spectacular day, AMY!
Love ya,
