My BIG Day

Good morning all
Well it is finally here my BIG day the day I am officially OLD my 50th Birthday.
As I look back at my years on this earth ... I used to be a spit fire I was wild, free spirited and a happy go lucky person. I got married at 16 yrs old to my Best Friend Bill we had been together since I was 13yrs old. ( And yes we are still together 34 yrs ). I had both my kids by 19yrs old.
Since I was so young being married and having kids I didn't have to many friends...So my Sister and I became BEST FRIENDS and let me tell you I don't know where I would be today with out her. I love you Bonnie thanks for always being there for me!
My 2 kids have blessed me with 2 of the worlds most Beautiful, smart loving Grand Daughters in the world.....My Daughter Tabatha gave me my 1st Courtney she is 6 now and they live with us that's why you see me scrapping her all the time.
My Son Bob blessed me with my 2nd Lily she will be 5 in May...I don't see her as much as I would love to but she is such a sweetie She has a smile that just touches your heart!
I have 3 Brothers & a Sister , I lost my Dad 6 yrs ago I am thankful I still have my Mom she turns 83 this year God Bless her.
I am thankful that my Hubby has a good job ( helps support my creative habit )
a roof over my head , a loving Family And I LOVE be a Grammy!
I am thankful I got to go to Disney as much as I did...I LOVE DISNEY!
I think I will always be a KID at heart.
As I look back threw all the ups and downs and I had a lot of downs...I wouldn't change one glorious second!
I might be a little ( ok a lot ) fatter, a little more cranky and slower but I made it to 50!
I am now in to scrapping & card making and I have made some of the most amazing FRIENDS
So thank you LORD for blessing me with such a WONDERFUL LIFE
Thanks to all that stop by my little piece of the web and sharing a little love along the way.
