wow. i feel loved. so loved. in fact, i feel like the grinch on how the grinch stole christmas...when his heart grows tons and tons of sizes because of all the love he feels inside.
i felt the love by my sweet M, who sneakily hi-jacked my account and wrote me such a sweet birthday post. i feel like meg ryan who has found her tom hanks (in you've got mail OR sleepless in seattle...take your pick).
i felt the love from you, my readers, my friends, by all of your lovely comments the last few days. you are wonderful.
i felt the love by my mom, dad, mother-in-law, father-in-law, and husband M who all went in to get me this beauty:
i'm so excited to figure her out and take some lovely pictures of my sweet E. here's one that i took yesterday:

i felt the love by my brother and sister-in-law who went out of their way to bring me cheesecake factory goodness and presents after our breakdown (emotional and mechanical).
i felt the love by all my church friends who remembered my birthday on sunday. especially my primary kids who sang to me. you made me feel so special!
i felt the love from all of the birthday calls, texts, and messages you left me. how wonderful to hear the voices and read messages from those that i love! i saved them all. sorry if i didn't get back to you; my phone was locked in the dead swan till late sunday...but they were very much appreciated.
i felt the love by my kindergartners...who sang to me, hugged me, and gave me lots of treasures, including hand-drawn cards and pictures, books, hot homemade bread (de-lish!), restaurant gift-cards, and a little plaque outlining the ABC's of life. what sweet little stinkers.
i felt the love by ellie...who gave me slobbery kisses...and tons of giggles. to die for!
i felt the love by M, lynne & jeffy who spent the day with me...and made me a delicious homemade meal with roast, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, fluffy rolls...and CUPCAKES! (who doesn't love cupcakes on their birthday?)
so, thank you to all of you for loving silly ol' me. it was a lovely day, in every sense of the word. indeed, i feel very loved.
