The Girl with ALL the answers.

I had a wonderful birthday and I appreciate each and every one of you who stopped by to wish me well and ask me a question.

Many of you asked me questions regarding my birthday.  (Shelly, Bobbi, Deanna, Handsome's Wife, Kay G., Shannon Romein, Karen, Kelli, Joyce)  You wanted to know how I was going to celebrate, if I celebrated an entire week, what my "perfect" B-day would be if I could do anything/anywhere, and what my birthday wish would be????)

I spent my actual birthday low-key, at home answering Happy Birthday phone calls from friends and family.  However, I did celebrate an entire week, a special GF took me out for lunch, Mister & Princess took me out for a Shrimp Dinner and a movie, then I enjoyed a BIG family dinner celebration in Tulsa.  It was a very special birthday. . .If I were to choose a EXTRAVAGANZA of a birthday party I would want to be with my friends, including YOU, and family on a cruise ship, sipping margarita's and watching a GREAT comedian together - I love to LAUGH!!  It wouldn't matter where we were cruising, as long as the weather was perfect and the water was silver/blue...My birthday wish would be for a year of perfect health and happiness for me, my family and friends.

Cheri asked who I would want to have sing "Happy Birthday" to me.  I didn't even have to think about this.  Garth Brooks.  No explanation needed, I have had a "thang" for him for years!

Joy Tilton asked if I ate cake for breakfast.  I did for years and years but now that I am "mature" I have left that habit behind.

Calamity Jane asked how I stay cheerful all the time?
I'm always surprised when people ask me this and I take it as a BIG compliment, so thank you, Calamity Jane.  I TRY to look at the bright side of life, and one usually sees what they are looking for.  Also, I surround myself with happy, upbeat people who are people of faith.  Knowing I have friends and family who pray in my behalf is a "Happy thing", and I know that GOD hears and answers our prayers.  Life is pretty good when you have a friend at the "top"!

Skoots1mom asked if I had a scriptural life verse.  I had never thought of a verse exactly in that context, but I do wrestle with fear from time to time and the verse that speaks peace to me in all sorts of situations is  Joshua 1:9.  "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

You had more questions for me
and I will answer the others tomorrow.

Would you do me the pleasure
of answering at least one of
the questions I was asked
in this post?


Shelly said...

Your birthday sounds like it was all a birthday should be. So glad you had such a great time! My scriptural life verse is Jer. 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future."

Susie said...

To me life is faith, family and friends, because all of these equals LOVE. So belated happy birthday to you. I know you enjoyed it. xo, Susie

Kelli said...

Glad your birthday was a special one. :)

Now I'll answer one of the questions. Not even gonna specify which one. The answer?

Michael Buble.

'Nuff said. ;)

Cheri said...

I would go anywhere that there was no WiFi or cell service, warm but not humid and just plain relaxing. I also wanted to add, I don't know who I would want to sing to me since I like so many but I sure would mind Sean Connery just talking to me. LOL

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Yes I would eat cake for breakfast. Yum! Happy Birthday and I would love to take a cruise with you. I have a feeling you would be a lot of fun.

Nonnie said...

I think all the ways you celebrated add up to a happy birthday.
Too many verses to ever pin down just one, but one of my favorites has always been Matthew 6:33 - Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.
Oops, I answered two of your questions.

Mari said...

Love your answers! I'm with Kelli - Michael Buble!!!
And I am all about cake for breakfast. :)

Jeanie said...

I ready to pack for the cruise...Just hope I don't have to get a new swimsuit.
I would love to have Garth sing to me also.

Say What? said...

I'm also a Jer. 29:11 girl here, especially as a homeschool mom. I hang onto that one tightly for the boys.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

If I feel like having cake for breakfast, I don't wait until it's my birthday. I do it!

NanaDiana said...

Oh- I haven't had any cake in such a long time~ I would love to have Neil Diamond sing Happy Birthday to me- or Elton John....xo Diana

NanaDiana said...

OR- Josh Groban!!!

Bobbi said...

Aha! So you must be a huge Chris Gaines fan as well??? Garth sings my favorite song of all time, 'The Dance'. I get teary every time I hear it.

I wouldn't think twice about eating cake for breakfast! But I should - Think twice, that is. When I come back from vacation I'm going to be good. Really.

Linda Chapman said...

What a great post!!
My life verse is Romans 8:28....
"All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."

It's nice to know you ate cake for breakfast too... I limited myself to the icing! I have always had to watch my girlish figure~ LOL
