My List of 50

It is my special birthday and how blessed I am!

Birthday greetings started early morning from family and continued throughout the day with emails and texts from friends. Not to mention birthday surprises in unexpected ways. Truthfully, I had low expectations, so to my amazement the day ended with many cards, gifts, and a dozen roses.

To even utter the words that I have made it to 50 is something to praise God for. Less than two years ago I went through a series of operations that ended in a tracheoplasty. Routine operations that had secondary complications, which are always likely to be problematic. 

Over the years when I think of my circumstances and experiences, and how God has kept me, it makes my heart fill up with gladness. For God is good all the time, and all the time God is good! Amen! I am still standing strong.
