  13. Ahhhhhhh go on...you're just a baby and with that cute baby fuzzy head too! I am older than you so I know what you should do! Take care of yourself first, then any others.
    Put everything on the back burners that isn't imperative. Your health is the most important now, all the rest will wait....while you get rest...wait....well, you know what I mean!:-) Happy Birthday to you, those roses look good with you.
    Now don't you have a movie to watch all curled up?! Go back to bed fuzzy head or at least the couch.

Next year, it will be behind you and you and hubby can plan something special. I look back on my scary times and I know I'm even stronger today. Our God is good...all the time. I hope your day is filled with love from all those who you mean alot to, including me.

    Birthday hugs and kisses!

    Your life has come to this point..with a few (ok maybe with lots of bumps)...
    and now you are right where God wants you to be...
    You are a wonderful witness to so very many people...
    I pray that your lucid hours
    last all day today...so you can enjoy this special day!!!
    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!!
