I rarely post this often but I thought I would share some pics from my birthday lunch. I have made so many friends blogging and I might not see you face to face ever. But wanted to share. I can't think of one of you who I wouldn't like to have at this table with us.

The first pic is my Mother, she is 81 and the most active woman I know. She does yoga, bone builders which is an exercise class and is active in her church. She use to do dance but thought she might want to slow down a little she is retired after all.  That is my son Paul between us always the shy one, waiting for a chance to escape.

The second picture is of my sister Anita, we call her Nita and my brother Don. My brother couldn't believe I was 51, he thought I was still in my 40's. Gotta love a brother like that. Or maybe he just started thinking how much older he is than me. was a compliment. I think.

The next picture is of my friend Chelsea, who took most of these. I met her on my last temp assignment and we have been great friends since then. Pretty girl isn't she, now if you know a nice christian young man on the east coast I will play

Anyway I wanted to share my birthday lunch. Missing some pics of my life long friend Cyndi and her daughter Maria who were there but Cyndi would fuss at me for posting. 

Toasting in my 51st year!!!!   Thanks everyone I had a ball!

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.---Proverbs 18:24

You didn't really think I was gonna post with no scripture did ya?
