As Another Year Begins

I was humbled and tickled by all of the lovely birthday wishes that I received from you, my family, my friends and my wonderful blogging buddies.  This photo was taken at my birthday dinner.  Our adorable waiter, Emerlito, decided that he needed to be in the picture with me to memorialize the moment.  Mark and our Angels took me out to one of our favorite fondue restaurants.  That steaming pot in the middle of the table is melted chocolate.  What more could anyone require for a happy, happy birthday? 

Another year has passed for me, as another one now begins and I am choosing to begin this year just as I did the last one and the one before that.  With a heart filled with hope.  

I would like to share my favorite quote with you, as it is something that has buoyed my spirit from sinking too low at times when I needed something to grab hold of.

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.

-Emily Dickinson

I could not have said it any better myself.

I appreciate everyone who stops by my site.  Each one of you brightens my days in ways which I cannot describe.  Thank you.

With love,
Debbie

...Oh Angel Debbie, we fail in comparison to the hope and joy you bring to us here. And not to mention, you're so dadgum pretty too! lol... :o)

...It looks like a good time was to be had by all, and any and all food items would've been double-dunked in that pot o' chocolate! YUM! :oP

...Many, many happy wishes comin' your way! "Hello" to the Angel Family!

...Blessings... :o)

Happy Belated Birthday Debbie.

Thank you for writing such beautiful, uplifting blog entries. Your readership truly is attributed to the beauty your words bring to each one of us.

I enjoy reading your blog.

Glad you had a great birthday, Deb!

Were you at The Melting Pot by any chance?

We had one in Richmond, VA and Roger would take me there for our anniversary or another special occasion. We made it at least once a year.

You are just precious, Deb.

Loved the quote.

You, my dear, are SO BEAUTIFUL! What a stunning smile you have, Deb...it isn't hard to see where your Angel Daughters get theirs!

I am so sorry I missed giving you Happy Birthday wishes, but I believe it's never too late, so...HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY...BELATEDLY...DEB!!! I hope that the coming year will bring you as much joy and happiness and knowing YOU has brought to me.

The past week or so, I have been in a funk. You know the ones...you know you're overreacting and need to get over it, but you just need to wallow for a while? That was me this week. And then I came over here and saw your smile, and read your post. As always, instant mood change :). It is impossible to read your incredible words and stay in wallowing mode. I'm not sure how you do it, but you always manage to say exactly what I need to hear/read, and when I need to hear/read it. I can't explain it, but I'm grateful :).

Lots of love and hugs, Deb, even when I'm not so good at commenting!

(And that vat of melted chocolate in which you got to dip assorted yummy morsels? OH, MY! I'd have a beautiful smile, too! HA...)

Deb,

I've been so darn preoccupied with CJ and life that I haven't had a minute to pop over and wish you the very happiest belated birthday!!

I love that pic!! It really made me smile.

I truly hope that this next year brings you happiness and love from your beautiful family, prosperity and goodness in everything around you and peace and with regards to your health.

You give us ALL so much that I can only hope you recieve even part of the joy you instill on others.

I for one, Deb, am a better person for having you as a friend.
