The Lucky One

Friday evening my friends, the Clematis Club, threw me and another member ("Happy Hour") a birthday luau celebration. Its the big number for me. I turn 40 August 4th. I got the most wonderful gifts: jewelry, homemade treats, candles, and a donation made in my name to the Humane Society. They all know me so well. But the real gifts....is the friendships of each of these extraordinary, talented, dedicated women and their beautiful families.I couldn't help but reflect that night as I saw the laughter and the dancing....that I am the Lucky One to have such precious gifts. God is great.

Ps....I guess THIS is how a pirate looks at forty.

OK now, let me get this straight - - - you won't wear a t-shirt with words across the front, but you WILL wear a coconut bra?????

Fun pictures. Fun party.
