Midnight Meditations???

If the smell of smoke wasn't still in the room, I wouldn't have believed it. In all my years of life, I've never had it happen before! But it was very thoughtful of Pookie to come into our bedroom soon after midnight with a tiny cake and four candles to wish me Happy Birthday! As I tried to sort out la la land with reality, I heard "Happy Birthday to you" and realized that yes, this was really happening:). Once I sat up in my bed, sleepily rubbing my eyes, she said, "It's your birthday!"

So with this *event* kicking off my birthday, I change the year in my profile from
"25" to "26" and look forward to spending the day in house of the Lord! What better way to spend the day???

And then I have a tiny little cake to look forward to when we come home:).
