Doc says my foot is healing!
I am feeling and looking so much better!!

I am looking great
 for someone who turned 71 on Saturday

I hadn't planned on sharing that information.
Since facebook had my birthday info, many of you already knew. Thanks for all your good wishes. You are fantastic people who are salt of the earth.

In our family, If your birthday falls on a weekend, thats any day from Wednesday thru through Tuesday, you get to turn it into a festival.  So I am in the midst of my festival. Isn't it neat how that works?

Seriously, it was really a quiet weekend with family. 
I spoke with both daughters in the morning. 
I received the beautiful basket on Friday from my sweet daughters
The afternoon was spent on the front porch, with fans twirling, swinging, rocking and visiting with my son. 
My son made this key line pie from scratch. He can put out a mean pie, ladies.
In the evening Bob, my son and two of my (perfect) grandsons went out for a fantastic shrimp dinner. 
You've never eaten shrimp until you have had fresh Georgia shrimp.
The grandsons surprised me with these lovely rubrum lilies.
Bob and I finished the day with a ride around the island on the golf cart.

Birthdays can't get better than a beautiful day, that the Lord hath made, spent with loved ones. 
Every day I thank our dear Lord for the blessings in my life. I have done nothing to be so blessed. God is the giver of all things blessed and by his grace I am here.

I am joining the following parties. Please link back to these gracious hostesses for great fun and inspiration.
Blue Monday/Smiling Sally
Masterpiece Monday/Boogie Board Cottage
Market Yourself Monday/Sumossweet stuff
Outdoor Wednesday/A Southern Daydreamer

Happy Birthday!!!

As you get older, birth "days" turn into birth "weeks" and even into birth "months"!!!

That's as it should be!

Ginger- Happy, Happy birthday to you. I did not know, I guess, that you lived on St. Simons Island...I was there many years ago and it is a beautiful place. Are you a native or a transplant...or a houseplant...okay..just kidding about the houseplant part!;>)

I'll bet the best part of your whole day was being with Bob and all the boys! Have a wonderful week- xxoo Diana

Dearest Ginger,

Happy belated birthday to you! It is almost the best time of the year around your birthday, nature is perfect in Georgia. Not long before the heat is back!
Have a wonderful week and many more years in good health.

Lots of love,

Beautiful flowers! My birthday was April 7. What day was yours on? Hope it was a good one!

Michelle @ Loving Every Second said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love that you are 71 and blogging! I can't even picture my grandma doing that - of course, my grandmas are 90 and 86 :) But my mom doesn't even blog and she's 62. So yay for you!

I hope you had a wonderful birthday (looks like you did) and I'm following you back!

Happy Birthday to YOU!

I can't believe you had a birthday, and I didn't know it. You didn't tell me! Shame on you!

But I'm wishing you many happy returns, precious. Looks like you had a great day, and I'm so glad!

Warm hugs across the miles...

I just found you, so late happy birthday. I absolutely love Savannah and am seriously thinking about moving there next year. Will be there, staying on Tybee, in June for vacation. Can't wait. I'm a new follower of yours!
