Famous Day

On This Day:
In 1770 - Beethoven was born.
In 1773 - This was the day of the Boston Tea Party.
In 1775 - Jane Austen was born (I LOVE this one!!)
In 1901 - Margaret Mead, the American anthropologist who authored 44 books and over 1000 articles, was born.
In 1944 - The Battle of the Bulge during World War II began as German forces launched a surprise counterattack against Allied forces in Belgium.
In 1950 - President Truman proclaimed a national state of emergency in order to fight "Communist imperialism."
AND in 1970 - I was born!!!!  (Sorry, I really set you up for that one, didn't I?!?!)

Have to brag on my boys - now you must know they are almost 11, 12, and 13 - hitting those ages when some things just aren't so cool AND YET, after Joe left for work, they quietly made scrambled eggs, bacon and toast, put them all on a tray, and crept into my room to surprise me!  My first Breakfast-in-Bed!!  (They did apologize for no coffee!!  :)  That made me chuckle!)
Chloe sat on my lap as I ate my breakfast - sharing nibbles of scrambled eggs with me and then told me, "You should wear a dress today- birthdays are for dresses,"  she said.  So as I lounged with my young'uns, I was late for work, but no one cared!!!
Why can't everyday be a birthday!?!??!

Oh yes - AND it's snowing!!!  I'm thinking that's a fun gift too!

Happy Birthday, kiddo!! Maybe now I can remember that you are 10 yrs younger than me. So, always remember it is good to have older friends--it makes you feel young ;)

Just warmed my heart reading the boys brought you breakfast in bed.That is sooo neat.MY guess would be do not get to used to it cuz I don't think Joe will be that nice.Maybe try reminding him on how hard you worked packing "ALL "those bags of candy.
Hope you're enjoying you special day.And the snow too!!!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
