A bowl of Pho Tai
I had a lovely birthday yesterday.  A meeting, mass, swimming 1500 meters, manicure, pedicure, lunch out (see above), and dinner out at a lovely steakhouse with my man.  At the restaurant, they overheard us talking about my birthday and brought us a piece of mocha ice cream cake, compete with candle.... but no singing, thank God!

Today I have a telephone interview at 10:30 and that is all I am going to say about that.  If you are inclined to, please say a prayer.

I was looking forward to starting this decade of my life.  When I think about it being my seventh decade, it makes me kind of queasy, so I think I will just enjoy today.  

As Pammie says, I will try to stay in today, because that is where God lives.  And I will thank him, because he has been so good to me.

I think I will probably stay sober this day, and I hope you all do too.

Long ago, you commented on my blog "sober by God's grace." Up until that time, I was all about the "scientific" treatments, the latest research. You were the first one to suggest to me God had anything to do with it.
Just want to tell you this day after your birthday about the power of your words.

I am glad that you had a wonderful day. Thinking of you with the interview. Who would not want you for a position? Have a good unbirthday, MC, no matter what.

It is 10:59 Eastern here, saying a prayer, that meal looks as if it is out of a magazine!

Bless you MC. Glad your day was special for you.
