H.B. K! & Rejoice!

As I wrote in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, it was a special day.  Valentine's Day, to be sure.  But, it was a special day for other reasons.

Knowing I had to go out later in the afternoon, I prearranged to meet with another local author. 

This fellow had recently held a contest.  One, that I had entered.  And, won!  Thank you Kit, for the copy of one of the books you wrote.  I'm sure I'll enjoy reading this prize!

Kit McCann's website will fill you in, regarding information about him and what he has written.  Here's a LINK for you!

After leaving the Tim Horton's location where Kit and I met, I made my way to visit my daughters and their families.  It was the first time I had been to visit with any of them at their homes, since I first became ill at the beginning of September.

While I have seen loved ones, on an individual basis when they dropped by my home, I had been trying to not go out and be around people.  This was the first time that all of my family members were healthy!  I praised God for this; thank You, Lord...

Throughout the fall and part of this winter, it seemed that one (1) was sick, then another, and another.  Due to this, I spent Thanksgiving alone, my birthday alone, Christmas alone and New Year's alone. 

Believe me when I say I was grateful that all were healthy and I was able to drive to see everyone!  Thank You, Lord!

At P's, we celebrated Valentine's Day.  My grandsons were happy to receive their sweet treats.

P's boyfriend was even happier.  It was his birthday!  So, we celebrated K's birthday! 

Normally, I would bake and decorate a cake, for him and for all of my family members.  But, with still not being able to bend down into my cupboard, nor stretching to reach in and lift out my mixer and other baking equipment, once again I wasn't able to do this.

K had a cake though, because P had bought one.  Thank you, P!  It was delicious!  Here's K, after blowing out his candle!  My grandson S, is in the pic with him.

Happy Birthday, K!

I would have posted a pic of my family, but my batteries in my camera, died!  This meant that when I went to my daughter B's home, I wasn't able to take any pics of my family there, either.  Sniff, sniff...

At B's, I was grateful being able to visit with my family members.  And, we enjoyed supper, together.  Thank you, B!  It was delicious! 

In some ways, this special day turned out better than what I had anticipated.  This brought to mind Psalm 118:24, "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

Even though it wasn't a perfect day for me, God sure made it good!  I rejoiced and was thankful!

Until next time...
