Happy Birthday Wanda



Happy Birthday my dear sweet friend. Because of your encouragement I have found a whole new world existed...."blogging," because of you I realized there truly are no strangers in my life only friends I have yet to meet, and because of you I have learned that the words Silent and Listen have the same letters in them and they are your favorite words, which by the way describe you perfectly.

You have shared your wonderful family, your home and the beautiful land where you live with all of us. With each of your post and comments I see the love you feel for your family, nature and friends. It could be a heart shaped rock, a delicious recipe or a visit from one of God's amazing creatures, your photo's show how you appreciate them all. The pictures of your grandchildren are so heartwarming and I love knowing how close you are to each of them.

In your quiet way you have shown all of us what can be accomplished with a smile and a heart full of love. Thank you for being my friend. Love you bunches and know that I am wishing you a very Happy Birthday....may it be your best day ever. Big Hugs to Alivia.......:-)

Dear friends if you get a moment please pop over to Moments of Mine and wish a lovely lady Happy Birthday.

Hello Bernie
Thank goodness for Google reader!
I was just getting ready to turn off my laptop and then I saw this post.
So, had to come by and wish Wanda a very happy birthday tonight as I will not be able to tomorrow as I'll be too busy.
Such a lovely post, I know Wands will love it!
I've always so enjoyed my visits to her blog, her posts give much joy!

Happy, happy birthday to you, Wanda.
It's a pleasure to know you!
Have a wonderful day full of much joy!

Good night Bernie.
Sweet dreams!

Margie :)

Bernie said...

Ahhhh thank you Margie, only got your message tonight.
Hope you get a moment to stop over at Wanda's, she would so enjoy your visit.
Saying a prayer for your husband and hoping all will work out well tomorrow.
Take care my friend....:-) Hugs

Wanda said...

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie...you are not only a treasured dearest friend, but it turns out...a very sneaky one too! You have made my morning very special, I hope you know that. I love having my morning coffee while reading your posts and eveyone's nice comments to you. They treasure you too!

Today I get to see a great nephew for the first time, I used to babysit his mom Anedra, my sister's daughter! All three are coming by, I'm anxious to tell them what you did for me.

Love to you Bernie!

BTW...how did you manage to get a photo...I thought I had all stored away under lock and key! Why do I think my daughter Annette is your partner in crime?!?!? Two of a kind you are!

Lo♥e...Wanda

Happy birthday to your friend, Bernie. Sounds like she did us all a good turn if she was responsible for introducing you to the world of blogging.

If Wanda was responsible for you starting off blogging, then *Thank you Wanda* is as important as *Happy Birthday*

Hi Bernie Sweetie...
Beautiful post about your precious friend Wanda. Happy Birthdays from friends are the best kind of all. You wrote so elequently sweetie, and I know you touched her heart, as you surely did mine.

I love the words and "Listen" especially. If the world only listened more.

Thank you for your prayers sweetie, they mean more to me than you could ever know.

Much love and so many hugs, Sherry

Bernie said...

Hi Sherry, felt so bad when I read about you sons dog...so hard to lose a pet I know.
My friend Wanda is very special to me, to all of us really. Have a wonderful day sweetie....:-) Hugs

Choices said...

Bernie,
I did receive your e-mail about Wanda's birthday. I don't know why your mail said that you didn't receive it. I even e-mailed you back.
Knowing that it was Wanda's birthday, I would never have forgotten it because it has been a pleasure to know her. I left a message on her blog wishing her a happy birthday plus I send her a birthday e-mail. Thanks for letting me know Bernie.

Silver said...

I need a hug.

Tell me. How long did it take you before you were fine (finally) on being, well, y'know, "On My Own" ?

Bernie said...

Anne, I'm sorry I didn't receive an e-mail from you, I'm not sure where it went to as I even checked my deleted bin just in case I missed it. The important thing is you remembered our friend's birthday, all is well so not to worry. I have e-mailed you Ann, I wanted to see if it would go through ok. Have a great day my friend.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Silver, big hugs coming to you, it doesn't ever go away sweetie you just learn to accept it and your way of living changes, you get to a point of "new normal" and then a contentment sets in. Be gentle with yourself sweetie, there will be bad days yet but also good ones and those are the ones you try and duplicate, love you......:-) Hugs

Mary333 said...

Bernie,
Is it just me or is everybody having problems with blogger? Whenever I try to publish a comment it disappears. I scanned my computer for viruses but it was clear. I read that you said blogger wasn't cooperating with you today and was wondering if you were having similar problems. I have had other difficulties with it lately too. I can't figure it out.

Bernie said...

Hi Mary, yes many people are having trouble with blogger. These problems usually resolve themselves within a few days, lets hope it does this times as well.
I will keep an eye on your post to see if you have worked it out, let me know if you hear from blogger administrators......:-) Hugs
