It turned out to be wonderful. Tara, my co-worker, made me a cake, gave me a funny card and a gift. The guys at the office bought me a cake, gave me a funny card and flowers. My parents sent me beautiful orange roses and had them delivered to the office. Bekah sent me a scarf from Japan. I received many wonderful cards in that mail and some great phone calls too. To to top it all off, three friends from Mason City met me in Des Moines to have a Birthday dinner.
It was a great celebration. God knew I needed every one of those bits of encouragement. He knew that I love my Birthday and made it special even though I'm in a new place and making new friendships. I'm very blessed. And I'm very thankful that God even cares about Birthdays.
