Hi Everyone!!!...I had to pop on here and show you a pic of my table setting I'm working on for tomorrow...Or should I say later today!!..HA!HA!...It's 3:36 am....

It's my birthday and today I get to meet a fellow prim lover...Dana and I belong to A Primitive Place...In fact she is the hospitality coordinator...So we are having lunch at my home today...

Wow!...MY 43 birthday!!!....I'm so blessed to be here..As I have shared with you before.... 7 years ago I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and my family was told I had 6 months to a year to live...I use to hate getting older, but now every birthday is a reminder of another year that God has given me that I could not have had...And if I wasn't here then my sweet boy, Luke, wouldn't be here..He will be 3 in a few weeks...

And then this past year I have been blessed with new friendships and creative opportunities that I never expected...I APPRECIATE EVERYONE that takes time out of their life to visit my little world....

Goonight my sweet friends~~hugs,Jen

Happy birthday. You are so blessed. I,too, am a cancer survivor. I was so worried I would not know my grandchildren, and I am so blessed to have each day with them. I know God has plans for you, as you are already a witness to everyone who reads this blog. Your light shines so brightly. Many more birthdays is my wish for you.
