I was also quite blessed and surprised by the presents I got. It has been a while since I've really focused on trying to think about what I want, because David and I just don't have the money to spend on wants. It's funny that at a time in life when I would have thought I would have a nice long list of wants, I really can't come up with much. So I didn't. All I could come up with was some much needed new tennis shoes.
Yet without asking for anything my family blessed me with the PERFECT presents that I wouldn't have even thought to ask for (AND the shoes). Take a look at the last picture in this slideshow to see what those were. The day was even complete with a pan of streusal bars and exactly 22 candles oh so carefully placed by my niece.
