It's Not About Me (at least not today).....

Being the kind of humble, behind-the-scenes person I am, today I am dedicating my blog post to other people. Of course these are some very special people (as they would have to be to earn blog time on my site). HA!

Today is my husband's birthday and he is now officially as old as I am, at least until November when I will once again be the oldest in the family (a fact my kids will never let me forget!).



HAPPY BIRTHDAY John, I love you very much!

Actually I know a lot of people who are celebrating a birthday today. In fact I think August 5th is the most common birthday date in my circle of friends and family. Do you have a "most common birthday date"?

In a couple of days my daughter will be celebrating a birthday as well. She will turn 11 so she is still "pre-teen sweet". She spent last week at camp and today she is posting about it on her blog. Of course she only briefly mentions the bible teaching (that was the focus of the camp) and never writes about the awesome prayer and worship experiences, but she gives great details about the fun and games. Actually, reading between the lines, all of the weeks activities encouraged relationships and team work.

Anyway, if you are so inclined please visit her HERE.

So with that I will sign off and let my husband and daughter be the stars of the day, they really do deserve it much more than I do anyway!!

Happy birthday to your husband. My husband is 6 years younger than me, but on August 22 he will be only 6 years younger.

My date that is very popular here is Oct. 6. It seems the numbers 16 and 21 are also popular. All sorts of births and deaths on the 21st of many months.

Awww. I wish your husband a happy birthday! Going to visit your daughter (blog) now.

Happy Birthday to your husband. That is a greeaaat photo of you two. Cute...laying on the ground with matching shirts.

Two more years of pre-teen sweet, huh?

My dad's big 6-0 is today. Another older friend's bday is today. I read on a blog that someone's child's bday is today. I can't remember now who. A co-worker's birthday was yesterday and another one on the 3rd. I didn't realize beginning of August was so popular.

Mine is one week after V-Day on 2/21. My family has like four or so in each month of Dec, Jan, Feb. So my mom does one birthday celebration each of those months.

You make a cute couple. His birthday is so close to my son's. My hubby and I are the opposite. I just turned forty five in June and in November he will be 46...and I never let him forget he is more than six months older than me! LOL! Happy birthday to all August babies.

Hello! What a wonderful site. Good job! This is my first trip to your site. I was so inclined to check out your daughter's post. Wonderful! It is also nice to find someone from the same great state!

Hey Kelley! Happy birthday to your dh and to your daughter.

I've been so busy that I haven't been able to stop by in some time. I was wondering if you received your books from the giveaway I done a while back.
