Anna’s birthday turned out to be a perfect, autumn day with snow flurries. Mom remembered when Anna was born we had a snow storm.
That evening, we had a delightful family party with her menu choice, a simple one: stew and Mary’s rolls. Dessert? A S’mores dessert. Anna’s known for her love of marshmallows, and this struck a perfect combination of marshmallows and chocolate.
With so many little ones, present time is funny. They’re all anxious to help the birthday person. Someone asked about Anna’s gifts. They included: a hand-knit scarf from Abby, sweet card for another niece, cozy boots, a balloon apron, flannel shirt, etc.
“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that
which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a
meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
1 Peter 3:4
