Another Year




I had asked for a gift of service, and it was gladly given.










However on my birthday morning - which was earlier this week, there were also gifts to open also.




And flowers arrived later from my husband.....










There was even an unexpected little cup holding hand-grown love from a friend.

It was a wonderful birthday week.

A very happy birthday for last week - sounds like there were some well deserved special treats. Love the 'gift of service' idea - shall start writing lists for my kids now and hand it over to then when they're a little older. How lovely that your husband sent you flowers. That's a gorgeous first photo, I probably should know the name - Iris? but am a little hesitant to guess. Do both your twins have that delectable curly hair?

Isabelle said...

Happy for you and the blessed week you had; hoping it goes on until your next birthday :)
Lovely photographs!

Vilisi said...

Happy belated birthday. The gift of service is meaningful and as valuable as any other gifts that money can buy.
