The Birthday guy -- is Nick.
I chose this pic cause of the black and white cat who maybe is a little like Nics cat. Notice a black foot and the white feet.
It could be birthday cake they have there for Niks special B day Page.
Nic likes to wear one white sock and one black soc, kind of like his cat. I think it's cute.
I didn't pick balloons. Nick never liked balloons!
..................H A P P Y ... B I R T H D A Y...... NICK......
HAVE A GOOD ONE.
HE IS DEFINITELY SPECIAL. A fun Loving, Kind, Happy guy. In spite of set backs we all have had due to money troubles these days, he still comes out as the best man he can be. Optimistic still about the future.
~ NICK born first week in May. Which makes him a Taurus baby.
One year I gave him a gift t- shirt with a saying on it. Mom says I'm special. When he was in his car accident his shirt was no longer wearable, so I gave him another one. He maybe doesn't know that one reason he is special, is just because he is my child.
He does enjoy t- shirts to express one thing or another. I look at that shirt and remember it all. It makes me grateful that he is still here like normal. Though, the year of his graduation, he did move out. It took me awhile to get used to him being gone. I just miss him being a little boy! I would gladly give up his room, if he wanted to move back. Though, , he can't come back as a little boy. Though it could take me awhile to empty it. I am learning to enjoy his adult stage as well. [ I am trying hard not to be so over protective of him and maybe give him as much space as he needs].
Like others his age he likes bumper stickers as well. I can't think of any at the moment.
~ He's Second born, born on a Sunday/ Monday. Which? Well the day of his birth by Cesarean was my birthday. I tearfully told the doctor that I didn't think it should happen that day, cause my mom had a birth on her birthday and lost him. Even though there was all that blood, which led me to go to the hospital, it was still so foolish of me, to believe in coincidental fate. I thought that if it could happen to her, it could happen to me. Because of the unplanned timing and because of my belief in coincidental fate, the doctor stalled around for what seemed like hours.
As I had time to think and feel the pain [sheepish smile] I was thinking about how I was scared something could be happening to my baby Nicky. [ His name was that as soon as I knew I was pregnant. We called him that in my womb. ] As time went on, I think I was realizing how silly I was being about the coincidental fate issue. So then I said to Dr. Feigle,
"okay doc forget all that, I am ready for this baby"
So, He was born on my birthday. I always claimed he was special because of that too. His name became Nic[k] in any spelling he chooses. But it was no longer Nicky.
~ He was a born good sport, works well with others. Tolerant, Patient, Great sense of humor.
~~~~H A P P Y ....B I R T H D A Y .....to Me too this week~~~~~
~~ I am grateful for having another birthday! I am so very grateful for having the life I have had, the love I have been given and earned and returned. For the responsibilities in life I have again earned, given enjoyed. I was once told, I would maybe be getting Lupins [cause of symptoms I was having]. Fortunately, it hasn't knocked at my door yet, nor has Alzheimer's symptoms, Cancer. For all that I am grateful and thankful for the time given free so far of those symptoms of the dreaded Diseases.
~~ I am thankful for some of my poverty, and I can't tell you why. I am especially thankful for my special children. My family. The life the Lord has given me. Good and bad. Cause it has taught me much more with each hardship. What I endured as a child helped me good and bad raising my own children and has taught me patience and tolerance, and forgiveness for others. And has of course brought God closer to me.
Our stone is Emerald.
Emeralds are special too. It is suggested as an anniversary gift for the 20th and 35th anniversaries and as an alternate stone for the 55th wedding anniversary.
The emerald is both the modern and traditional birthstone for May. It is also listed as a birthstone for the Zodiac signs for Taurus and Cancer, as the Planetary stone for Taurus and the Talismanic stone for Gemini. Emerald and Topaz is listed as in all of the ancient birthstone tables.
I copied this from Laura from Our Scented Cottage
The emerald is also the sacred stone of the goddess Venus. It was thought to
preserve love and has long been the symbol of hope. It's considered by many to
be the stone of prophecy. For some, the emerald acts as a tranquilizer for a
troubled mind and it is said the emerald brings the wearer reason and wisdom.
The strongest time for the powers of the emerald is said to be spring.
In ancient times, emeralds were used as amulets to ward off epilepsy in
children and thought to cure diseases of the eye. Folklore suggests that these
stones will improve memory, intelligence, and enhance clairvoyance thus helping
to predict future events. They are also worn to enhance love and contentment.
Cleopatra prized emeralds above all other gems. Posted by Laura Our Scented Cottage.com/
That seems like the Gem to have, doesn't it.
