Teapot and Roses


 Anything with roses calls to me.

If they are pink, they make my heart jump.

So to receive this gorgeous rose-covered teapot in the mail made my birthday very special.

It was from a dear friend, Cathy, in Arizona.  

She sent it all the way to Massachusetts at a very 
large cost! ($18.00. Ouch)

Another friend Dolores, brought over a perky bouquet of fall flowers. So, so pretty!



There were many phone calls, cards and other gifties, too.

This basket of darling gifts was from my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. 


They included gift cards to most of my favorite places! So thoughtful!

My daughter had a pumpkin cheesecake ready for candles (and eating), too!




Fall is a great time to have been born and every time the season rolls around,  I remain glad to be alive!

WHAT DO YOU FIND TO BE THE BEST ASPECT OF BEING ALIVE?

Happy happy birthday! I definitely feel that connecting to ourselves, others and nature is what defines a wonderful life. The mind/body/heart connection to all things. Happy Fall!

Fall is surely a good time to have a birthday, Susan. Your pink rose tea pot is so nice sent to you from a special friend. And pumpkin cheesecake......I'll have to try that sometime! :)

Happy first day of Autumn.

Happy Birthday dear Susan.
There is a million reasons to celebrate life. I think being able to give and receive love is one of the best aspects though...

Happy birthday ! What sweet and loving friends and family you have. The teapot is a real beauty , I think she knows what you love.

What do I love about life ? That I am alive and have so many reasons to rejoice and so many things to look forward to each and every day and that I have a loving family I enjoy being with, and.....

What can I say, God is so good to us, isn't He ?
