65 Blessings

I'm a 'Card-Carrying Old Person now! I have my medicare card because I turned 65 today,
and I'm very happy, which is a blessing!
Below and in the middle you can see a Shrike with its head turned sideways. He is checking me out as I watch him tear apart a mouse.
How many times have you witnessed that kind of drama!? My Dear Husband greeted me this morning with these lovely Primroses, my favorite chocolate bar, and a gift certificate to The Crema. He finally gets it!
Keep it simple, surprise me, and give me flowers, chocolate, and good coffee.
After church, Lovella had made my requested dinner: Fried chicken, cole slaw, baked beans, and Italian Cream Cake. It was all very yummy!
You can see my Dear Husband supervising the cutting.

Evan and Alina sang and danced for me.

Coffee with Lovella's gift of chocolate chip cookies began the day...with the Shrike and Jay's gifts, At church there was a surprise gift of cake and a computer carry-all, a bundle of pussywillows and cards with a PINT of Blackcap jelly, and many well-wishers, and a lunch date with all who can make it to our best eatery in town, a call from Kelly in Afghanistan, friends from my old township, my daughter, sisters and brother, and many greetings on FB. What a day!
There were at least 65 blessings in this day, and I am thankful to God for the good health I continue to enjoy, the Joy He gives me each day, and my family and friends.
Thank you all!

Lovella's home looks wonderful!

I'm so glad you had a lovely birthday, you senior citizen, you!

Oh, the cake looks to do for. Yummy!

Oh what a wonderful birthday! God truly has blessed you. Jay's gift to you was so thoughtful. I would love something like that. Tell him "good job"!

Welcome to Medicare, LOL.
