My birthday ... still.....

Hi all

Ok............. today wasn't so bad after all......... IT WAS TRULY AMAZING!!!!!

Who knew that turning 40 would be so much FUN!!! (Actually all you 'over-40ers' said that LOL - I just didn't realise that the fun started from the minute one actually turned 40!)

I have had the very BEST day ever! My day started with me being woken up by my children and hubby for gift giving time. Then it was get ready and off to work (I'm a teacher aide) and at the school where I work the staff really laid it all on today!!! It was WONDERFUL!! Each class I went to sang 'Happy Birthday' to me (one class even sang it in three different languages!) They had an afternoon tea party for me with a huge spread of yummy food AND a black forest cake complete with '40th' candle LOL. I got pressies from the staff and a card from one of the students and her sister. EVERYONE made me feel so wonderful! I can't ask for a better workplace. They are a wonderful group of people (and children) to work with.

Also... YES THERE'S MORE!!!........ My hubby's work had delivered to the school a big arrangement of flowers. And a good friend sent a bunch of balloons!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!

And then to come home and see all the wonderful wishes from you all on my blog!! Well, I'm just about ready to cry with love and happiness! So I just want to say a big BIG thank you to all of you for your wonderful birthday wishes!!! THANK YOU

Debbie - I'm so glad you had an awesome birthday. You have amazing family friends and that makes everything so great. It does truly get better and so much more fun - I think with me it was because I realized that life doesn't stop when you turn 40 and that you have to make everyday your best regardless of how old you are. Continued happiness for this year. HUGS !!
