Happy Birthday to Me

December 28th, 2006 at 08:04 am

Howdy, friends and neighbors. If you notice in my bio to the right, a digit in my age has changed. Yes, I am a year older. Am I mortified? Feeling old? Feeling sick? No, to all of the above. My Papa (grandfather) had a story he told about one time when he was in his late 80s and went to sing and play his saw at a nursing home. A old man was there and was moaning and groaning about being old. Papa asked him "Well, how old are you?" and the man said 65. Papa said, "I am 89 and I don't feel old." Papa died in July 2000 just a few months shy of 97. He remained very active until about the last year or so before he died. He lived a very good life and so I try to practice his philosophy of feeling good about yourself no matter what your age is. I feel fortunate and blessed to be alive and healthy.

    Happy Birthday! I'll be joining the 36 crowd soon. 35 was hard for some reason; hoping 36 will be much easier!

    Happy Birthday. I like 36, its been a good year, only have 6 weeks until I leave 36 behind, but I don't mind. Birthdays that end with a seven are always good years for me so I'm looking forward to 37.

    Happy birthday - my 40s so far have been much better than my 30s, so it only goes up from here.
