Last weekend was my husband’s birthday. It wasn’t one of those “monumental” numbers, but I believe every birthday should be the best day in the year for the one who’s celebrating. I asked my husband if we could go away for a couple nights. We had an even greater blessing of a quiet three night get away to a lovely lake cottage about an hour away.
The picture below is my favorite place to sit and have my Quiet Time in the morning. The first morning we woke up to a skiff of snow. How beautiful!
I took very simple foods with me for our meals, but we always say that even a peanut butter sandwich would taste like gourmet food at the lake! Breakfast on his birthday didn’t get pictured, but consisted of Eggs in a Basket with sour dough bread, Canadian Bacon, fresh fruit and coffee.
Even oatmeal with fresh fruit tasted heavenly! The view is always breathtaking.
For Birthday supper I made one of my husband’s favorites – Turkey Burgers. I picked up pretzel rolls that put them over the top! I served oven fries and Broccoli Salad to go along with the burgers.
Dale got triple Birthday desserts spread out over the week. We celebrated with our small group with brownies and ice cream and again with our family later in the weekend.
Then we met up with some special friends at Aubrey’s where they brought him a free Turtle Cake and Ice cream. Yum.
For a Non-monumental birthday, I’d say we did lots of celebrating! We are so grateful to the Lord for every day the Lord gives us and for the blessings from His hands.
What do you do to make birthdays special?
Refresh every day like it was a birthday!

You’re so good at making birthdays extra special! Dad’s lucky to spend all his birthdays with you! ❤
You’re sweet; thank you, Whitney. I really try to make his life better, and you just can’t “be out a birthday cake!”

The Winter tea is a nice idea even without the Dreary Year we all have experienced. We need to be cheerful, and think of ways to have special things in our daily lives. We, as older Retirees have had Winter teas periodically, and enjoy the times, it is uplifting.
You have epitomized this so well! Thanks for your good example. 💓
