April 4th Birthdays

Last Saturday was a very special day! My Mom turned 83 years old...6 years ago this fall we wondered if she would live until Christmas following a trek from the fifth floor of her condo via the stairs to the lobby at ground level, after a false fire alarm which caused her heart to go into arrhythmia and her oxygen levels to deplete. After more than 4 years on continuous oxygen, a new drug was tried in the form of an inhaler twice a day and voila, she has been off of continuous oxygen for more than a year. And whats more, she is doing really well! Happy Birthday, Mom...may you continue to enjoy good health and be here for many more years!

April 4th is also the birthday of my friend Loretta's hubby Robert and last Saturday he turned the BIG 50! We were invited to their home to help him celebrate his big day with funny cards, presents and of course...CAKE!! I found some of the sweetest cookies while shopping at Costco. I just knew Loretta would love them and she did! Happy Birthday Robert!

Linda, the birthday photos are lovely! The little cookies are all gone; they were so good. I'm glad you could make it to the party; it was a fun time!
