Old Stone Well Farm

Remembering Birthdays

Friends, there won’t be a Sunday video this weekend as I am taking some time to catch up on projects, tend to the garden and chickens and — after the latest news coming from our government — I am taking time to be still and soak in all of God’s healing grace that I find in the chirping of the birds, the cackling of the chickens and the robust bellowing of the cows (watch the video for the backstory on this!).

It’s also my birthday weekend…well, my birthday is June 27. Still, my husband knows how I like to milk my special day. It is special. And as I get older I realize this more and more. I also realize how meaningful it is to remember someone’s birthday (more on this, too, in the video).

To be remembered … to know we are loved … to feel our gifts are seen … our voice is heard … isn’t that what we all want? Isn’t that what makes this world a better place? So, thank you all for remembering my birthday. I know I am not the greatest at returning the favor, but this year as I blow out the candles on the cake, I will vow to become better at remembering.

Blessings and peace!!!

  1. Hi Donna! From one birthday girl to another, I just wanted to wish you the happiest of birthdays! (Mine was yesterday!)

    I hope you spend it doing all the things you love with the ones you love! Chelsea came to visit so I had the best day at the beach with my three grandkids, making imperfect sandcastles and imperfect birthday cake together! All very perfect!

    Sending you lots of love on your special day! Miss you, Laurie xoxo

    • And a blessed birthday to you, too!!!!! It sounds as if you had a wonderful day! Sandcastles and imperfect birthday cake are the best presents one can get. I even hate to ask how old the grandchildren are? Time flies by so fast. Miss you much, but it is so good to keep in touch like this!!!!! Love and hugs! Donna
