birthday blessings and MM 393-

While I was away last week, I had my 30th birthday.  It was low-key because I was in IL visiting my family with the boys, and it was stinkin' cold and snowy there.  When I returned home to MO, my heart was warmed.  Waiting for me were several birthday cards with sweet notes, some of which made me cry, and financial gifts to put towards our medical bills.  Some people, with their own medical bills they are paying off, gave and I cried.  People with their own kiddos to provide for gave and I cried. A card from my best friend made me cry.  A card from a family friend that has known me my entire life made me cry.  Basically every piece of mail made me cry.
Thank you, friends and family, for your kindness and generosity.  You made my day.
