A wee birthday story....

Good Evening sweet friends.. 
Thank you for dropping by the Blessed Hearth today.. 

This is a special day in our life.. 
Terry and I were blessed to have this day for our eldest child's birthday... 

You all know our lovely daughter.. 

Shonda Lynn... 

She was born to two very young parents who did not have much knowledge in the raising of a dear little girl.. 
But... she survived.. grin..

She also has two brothers who love her.. 
And her own dear family.... 
A husband who adores her and two sweet lads.. 

God has been good...  
Happy Birthday dear child... 

I want to tell you a sweet little story, too.. 
See this little garden.. 

I planted it in an old wheel barrel in June when we came down for the Summer.. 

It already had chives but I planted the pineapple mint, rosemary, stevia and the little yellow rose plant.. 

Shonda gave me the rose for Mother's Day.. 
It was in a wee pot and didn't do too well.. 

I brought it down here and planted it in with the rest.. 

Today... it bloomed... 
Isn't that sweet? 

It was almost out yesterday but waited until today to really blossom.. smile...

Just a little blessing from the Lord  along with all the precious things He does for us in the run of a 

While I was at the shop today I wrapped up one of 
Shonda's gifts..

Just used a page from an old book..
A Summer Day..

This is just a little thought for her that I am quite sure she will like.. 

Ah oh.... 
Now you all know how old she is..  
Don't let on I told you..grin.. 

Have a blessed evening lovely ladies and I will chat with you soon... 
Looking forward to hearing from you all.. 

Sending you all hugs..

    Dear Faye,
    Love the idea of planting the plants in the wheel barrow. Next year I may try to plant some flowers in a old suitcase. Think it may look really neat and primitive! What do you think? Love Ya, Char
