HaPpY bIrThDaY!


Its my birthday.

I'm thankful to be 55 years old. I embrace my grey hairs, my laugh lines, and saggy skin.  If I was younger, I couldn't be the mother to my amazing children, or a grandmother to their children.  

I love being me.

I have had a sweet life, overall.  The Lord has been gracious to me,  I am blessed with a loving family, I have dear friends, my health is good, other than a challenging lower back.

I've learned many things in my 55 years of life, and I'm thankful for the wisdom gained.

Here's to another 50 at least! (grin)
