BlogginBirthday Finale ... Pink Saturday 1~23~2010

Dearest Sue,
It's not so much the world outside
That makes us sigh or smile...
It's more the feeling in our hearts
That makes life seem worthwhile!
And as you read this Birthday card,
I wonder if you guess the countless times
The thought of you
Has brought me happiness?
Connie Marie

Thank-you SweetSister of Mine
For yet another Special Birthday Wish!
I've saved every card for many years,
And I have read them all countless times.
Everyone is a Special Treasure,
And brings me such pleasure!

Thank-you My Special Bloggin Friends
For All the Birthday Wishes.
And as you read this message,
I hope you know how happy you have made
This Girl Raised in Texas.
