~HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANZA...TURNING 50 is NIFTY~


Dear Sweet Tea (Tanza)...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOVELY FRIEND!

I hope you don't mind me hijacking my way into your account :) again this year in order to SCREAM OUT TO THE WORLD my friend is turning...um...well...eeeeeek.....

~FIFTY~

You now belong to the same club as so many of the rest of us and how BLESSED you are to reach this wonderful age. I hope you aren't afraid...

I was at first...but not anymore! There is just too much fabulous living to do to be held back simply by the years I've already lived. I know you feel the same!

God has so much in store for you! You are so incredibly gifted and you've been favored by the Most High with a beautiful family and friends who, like me, simply adore you. You are by far the most giving, loyal friend I've ever had and I want you to know first hand how much I love you.

Your encouragement to me during my darkest of hours has helped to bring me to where I am today. Your grace and faith in me chased away my fears and helped me stand tall.

I'm so grateful for your love and I'm honored to call you friend.

Know that this entire day I'm thinking of you and thanking God for your presence in my life.

Love to you~

Your Forever Friend, Happy Birthday, again...

Rebecca

  10. Hi Tanza, happy birthday to you!! Hope you have the best day everrrr! How sweet of Rebecca to do this post! To be honest when I turned 50 panick bells started ringing as no way was I ready to be 50!! I still have so much to do and dreams to fulfill.. so my new favorite saying is 'you're only as old as YOU want to be.. age is only a number! Works for me... take care, Maryann

  14. Ooohhh my Gosh !! What a BiG Birthday surprise !! Rebecca, you yourself are aMaZiNg !! Aren't you the sneaky one .. This was just oVeR the moon Sweet !! But, you never cease to amaze or surprise me !! Thank you soo much, to you sweet ~r~ for remembering me on this BiG birthday, and to each of you my bloggy friends for your warm wishes, and loving, encouraging, inspirational words !! You are all the most wonderful, talented, loving group of women, and how wonderful to have shared this day with all of you ..

    I have celebrated all week, and today was a massage, mani, and pedi, than I was taken to lunch by my wonderful sisters, and Momma to Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach .. Just us, lunching, and visiting right at the Ocean .. It couldn't of been a more beautiful day, and than off shopping to Laguna Beach, and than Corona Del Mar .. WoWsers .. Soo much to see, picked up a few pretties, BUT, a little pricey for mee !! How much longer can I tell hubby I'm spending birthday money ?! Yikers .. hahaha .. such fun tho ..

    Tonite I was with my family alone, and we went to El Torito for dinner, it's Cinco de Mayo, soo always have to eat Mexican on my special day !! We had some cake and more prizes .. I STILL do not believe I'm 50 !! I always think of my Momma as 50 !! I'm still 25 .. NOT !! But, it's what's inside girlies, RIGHT !! I'm so much smarter now, and have truly realized the little things don't matter !! Things that I've always thought to be so important are not, and it's really the little things that matter the most ~ I serve an awesome Lord and Savior, and am truly blessed with the most amazing, wonderful family !! My friends are the BeST, and you my Bloggy girlies, are always there for me .. full of love and inspiration .. Your my morning giggles, and always someone that warms my heart .. I thank God for each of you ..

    Thanks so much again from the bottom of my PiNk lovin' heart, and I pray that each of you are feeling loved and blessed this very day ~

    BiG, BiG hugs
