Happy Birthday Dear Hubby

Austrialian Birthday Gift

On a FAT trade "Out of The Blue", Kathryn from Australia
made a beautiful wind chime out of a disc and fabric. On the tails she wrote encouraging words. I loved this great piece of art and so for my birthday she sent me one. Now it hangs in the corner of my studio right by my cutting table.

I can choose one of the tails, read it and be encouraged when I am feeling down.
The one showing says "IMAGINATION". The little Japanese girl on front of the card is so adorable. She is a Porcelina design. And she looks like a little porcelain doll.
Hubby's Birthday Happy, Happy Birthday
Today is my hubby's birthday and I am working tonight
and he's working during the day. I saw tears form in his eyes this morning after I gave him my card and Bear gave him his birthday card. He said to me, "It won't be the same this year without you." I have never missed being with him on his birthday in all the years we dated or have been married.
It made me sad to think about it. BUT I do know God's ways and purposes are bigger than any of us. My sons and DIL will take him out for dinner tonight. Hopefully they will insist bc hubby will blow it off w/o me there. Pray he will allow them this expression of love for him to celebrate his wonderful day.

Hope your hubby's birthday was spectacular, even without you being there for dinner.
