So, last night at 7:30 sixteen women arrived at my house to party. What a delightful way to prepare for Medicare. I decided to serve cupcakes and, no, Cheryl, I didn't bake my own. I ordered them from a new cupcake bakery in the city. They were absolutely scrumptious.
I put the dessert in my craft room hoping that some of the people would settle in there and visit, but alas, everyone crowded first,into the kitchen and then into living room. I guess women are really pack animals. It worked well and everyone seemed to have a good time.
I received wonderful cards and donations to Haiti relief, but the best part is having friends like this with whom to share special occasions.
I feel so blessed to have arrived at this day with precious friends (many of them in Blogland), a wonderful husband who loves and likes me, my dear children, a loving extended family, a modicum of good health and a God who holds my past, present and future in his hands. Who could ask for more?
We will be leaving for our winter sojourn on Tuesday so my next post will be from Henderson, NV.
