"You say it's your birthday
It's my birthday too, yeah
They say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you. "
~The Beatles

Yes, it is my birthday. And guess who sang this song to me earlier this week?

None other than:

Sir Paul McCartney himself!
O.k., I guess that he sang it to about 40,000 other people at the same time... But I didn't mind :)

I was so lucky to get tickets for my birthday and my youngest son (a big Beatles fan) and I went to the concert together! WOW! What a concert! He played for 3 hours straight without a break or even a drink of water in 90+ degree heat! I don't know which I liked better ~ the Beatles music or the Wings music? "Live & Let Die" really blew me away!

From watching him on stage you would never guess that he is 69! His stamina and energy really kept the show flying by.

Yesterday it was back to Wrigley Field for another gift:

a Cubs WIN!

See the "W" flag on the left? That signifies a win and is what we always hope to see at the end of a game :)

Thanks for letting me share my fun and my finishes :)

"Shout to the Lord, all the earth, Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You."

~Chris Tomlin

Blessings, Patti

Happy Birthday [a month late!] It's my birthday too! I loved Aug 7th for a birthday growing up - it broke up the summer and when I was older - it was the perfect excuse to get that 'school' item that was slightly out of budget!!
