Free Rooty Tooty Fresh N' Fruity & Counting My Blessings

Happy Birthday to ME !!!
Yup, today's my birthday.
The BIG 41 ~

I have to say though, that I'm looking forward to this year.
So many blessing have come to be this past few months.
 Let me share a few with you:

1.  With being faced with cancer, 
I now know what it means to appreciate life : )
I can honestly say that I have never really had that kind of appreciation. 

2. I have learned who my true friends are. That kindness sometimes comes in the
smallest forms but has the biggest effect. I intend to pay it forward.

3. There are sincere people in the world. 
I have met so many amazing people in blog-land.
I'm thankful for their friendship.

4. I am FOREVER thankful for my Mother.
I could not imagine my life without her.

5.  Taking time, when I have the energy, MUST be spent
showing my daughters just how much they mean to me.

6. The Hubby is the PERFECT person for me. 
I now know that he was made just for ME.
I'm grateful to wake up next to him every morning
and fall asleep next to him every night.

Now, I'm gonna go to IHOP and enjoy a Rooty Tooty Fresh n' Fruity (for FREE)
then stopping by Starbucks for my free cup o' joe : )
