{Day 37}

b-daymakeup2011Thank you for making my birthday so incredible!!! I had an amazing day Saturday with my sweet mother.  The ladies at Urbaca totally spoiled me.  Not only did Laci give me an elegant updo but Sherry and Tay did my make up and took pictures for me.  As if that wasn’t enough they gave me a gift bag filled with great products and specially made items.  I was so grateful.  Then I had lunch with my best friends (aka mom and dad) and then my mom and I got ice cream to eat at the park.  The Lord blessed me with a beautiful, sunshine filled day.  In the evening my friends brought me the most amazing chocolate torte.  Eight pounds of amazingness.  Seriously so wonderful.  Toady at church several generous people gave me donations for the orphans and that was really exciting.  My mom made a perfect lunch (my mouth is still watering) and my dad made me a special gift.  Having friends and family join me for a relaxing day (where I ate far to much) was such a gift.  Everyone’s birthday wishes/gifts really made for such a great birthday! Thank you!!!

    Dearest Elaini,

    I was so worried about getting your Mom’s card in the mail that I skipped your special day. I always seem to be a day late and a dollar short!
    A belated Happy Birthday with good wishes for a great week, continued support for the orphans, I will add $24.00 (an extra dollar for being late) to the fund.
    I hope this special wish helps make up for my error.
    God Bless You…Love Aunt Mary Kay

    How fun! Your hair looks stupendous! Just how a 23-yr old should look. And is that Jeremy’s chocolate cake?? Sooooooo jealous.

      It was fun. 🙂 Glad I look 23 in at least some pictures and not the normal 16… 😉 Yes Jeremy’s cake. SO. VERY. YUMMY!!!

    Happy Birthday a day late, Elaini! Congratulations! I hope you enjoyed God’s gift of sunshine to you!
    We had two one-year olds here for the weekend and dinner guests yesterday….a busy place. So I was anxious to catch up on your website this morning. Your extra photos are so fun to see, especially with all those smiles, which you display so beautifully! Your smiles radiate love for the children of India and your thoughtful writing has such heart. Elaini, you give us all a lift every day, reminding us to appreciate life and how we can share our abundance with others. Be encouraged: there is much blessing for many people because of your efforts and inspiration.

    You’re such a pretty girl that you could wear a burlap sack or grocery bag and still be beautiful! This is such a generous thing you are doing and I hope you are able to earn waaaay more than you even imagine.

    On of my community members posted a link for us to visit, so I jumped over. Here’s the link (http://theblogfrog.com/1024359/forum/109354/a-blog-worth-visiting-.html) to my community. You are welcome to come and chat with us and we will try to help you get more people to visit :o) I’ll make the chat thread live on Wednesday if you tell me that you will pop over in the evening. Just let me know.

      That is very generous of you and very kind. Thanks for posting a link. I have never done that sort of a “chat” and I am SO not techy. Haha! How do I go about this? Thank you!
