It's like having a party!

Oh my goodness!  Dawn is a dear and "our shared birthweek" might explain why we always turn out the same on online quizzes and why I want to be just like her when I grow up (except I'm older, so that won't work, will it?)  I better go bake a cake and brew some coffeemake pumpkin pudding and steep some tea--it's a virtual birthday party! Honestly, I can't imagine a year more wonderful than last year.  And I'm looking forward with what St. Therese would call "audacious confidence" to the blessings of the next year. I am so grateful for this community, particularly for the prayers and the friendship of the warm women who daily make my life more beautiful.
