Happy Birthday To Me.......................

Betty age four or five............................
Happy Birthday to Me,
Happy Birthday to Me,
Happy Birthday to Me,
Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeee!

Today is my birthday and it's been declared a holiday........you may have the day off...the banks are closed, government offices, the post office.....my Mother said it was Labor Day, the day I was born, regardless which day of the week it was on........

I have 66 candles on my birthday cake this year.....a fire hazard so have the fire extinguisher near by.......

I have been so abundantly blessed throughout my life with a loving family, many friends, including all of you, but most of all because my Heavenly Father sent His son, the Lord Jesus Christ to do something for me that I couldn't do for myself........to give me eternal life.........thank you............

Happy Birthday Betty !!!!! Hope you've had a wonderful day.

As a child I waited in the pouring rain outside the post office in our town to see Princess Diana drive along the road. Her car went slow as she waved to us cheering crowds. She hadn't married charles at the time, but I think that they were engaged.
It was so sad signing the condolence book after she died ~ love Julia x

Found you from My Messy, Thrilling life.
I want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday, because MY birthday is September 3, too. In fact I was sixty this year.
My children gave me the best birthday party on Sunday evening.
Again, Happy Birthday!!
