It is coming on that time of year again. Time has once again marched on and is quickly approaching February 8---my birthday. Another birthday-YIKES!!! This year I will turn 44. I can remember when I thought of that age as being "old". I no longer think of it as OLD, just more mature. (hehehe) Eventhough my birthday is not until Monday, I was invited on Wednesday to an early celebration lunch by my sweet friends Michele and Joyce (Scrap for Joy). It was the most delightful afternoon filled with friendship and laughter. Joyce prepared a wonderful lunch of grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. It could not have been a more perfect menu. That is one of my most favorite meals. There is something so warm and comforting about hot soup and a warm sandwich. I felt so special as I walked into the dinning room and saw how pretty the table had been set.
