Cheerios, toast and hot tea :-)
Even Princess joined in!
We had a great day, did some shopping and waited for Jerry to get home. I signed us all up to participate in Beads of Courage to help children with serious illnesses. We made a donation as well as made a bracelet for the child who was sick and one to take home. The store even served pizza and drinks and snacks for us. :-)
You can learn more about this wonderful organization here. We plan on doing many more to help these children. Keeping them and their families in our prayers.
We also got to meet a little boy who will benefit from this program. His parents and sister came tonight. He was born with only 3 parts of his heart working and had surgery to save him...the prognosis is grim, but the parents still keep the faith. It was emotional.... I am so very blessed to have healthy children.
The girls really enjoyed themselves and we did too!
Kathleen's little hands working....
Each bracelet that you donated also had a card to fill out your name, where you are from and a personal message to add. Then you tuck that into a little plastic bag along with the jewelry.
These are the ones we chose to keep and Jerry donated both of his to the children.
Hayley's is on top, mine is the bottom and Kathleen's is to the right. :-)
When we got home the girls were excited to give me my gifts along with having some cake!!
Singing Happy Birthday to me.....
They made me beautiful cards, got me a pretty necklace, one of my favorite perfumes, and an Estee Lauder makeup and skin care gift set. :-) I'm one lucky Momma!
I am so very blessed!
We are preparing for the storms coming off of hurricane Irene....thinking of all my blog friends and family that may be affected. Many blessings to you all!
Thank you for my birthday wishes!!!
