After Christmas you can get a little blue due to activities being over… so gives me something to look forward to…

My cousin and I were born on the same daysame year… same hospital…

which is pretty great!!…

but, when January 15, 1973 came… a little boy came to share that day too…

my youngest son, Brian…

I have many nieces and nephews and my Mother who also shared this month…

Some of my favorite Birthday gifts I remember were books I received from a sister-in-law…

Bobbsey Twins… I was probably 8 or 9… Because I was 10 when they married…

My love of books began in my younger years along with art… Coloring… Drawing… Painting…

a few paintings…

I usually give away what I paint…

I just bought myself a new Book Light…

I love to read while Bobby has his chemo… but, he likes the room dimmer when sleeping…

and my eyes are not as good to read like that…

I also like to read in bed at night…

so, this little light helps me to enjoy my books…

The books were just one thing I remember… as a favorite Birthday gift… but, I have many!

  1. Happy Birthday Marilyn!! Hope you got to enjoy it! :)

    My nana got me a light like that a couple of years ago. It’s now in my closet but I have a different one but it doesn’t give off a lot of light at one time so I might need to go thru my shelf in the back of the closet. Wish me luck on getting that done!

  2. Happy Birthday Marilyn. I loved the Bobbsey Twins too…also Little Women, I read that beautiful story still and remember my grandmother who introduced it to me as a child. God bless you in 2017.
