And The Years Keep Coming

On November 5th, 1968; my mother gazed down at her newborn baby and said "Great . . . another girl". Yes, that other girl was me. Tomorrow this housewife will be celebrating her 37th (ouch) birthday. And as a present to myself I'm taking today and tomorrow off from the 'sphere. I want to enjoy these days and not having to indulge in confrontations will be pleasant. But I'll be doing what I normally do too, shopping.

I would like to say however how thankful I am. Each year that passes is a gift from God. Some years I want to just laugh and say "Ha, I've beat the odds and survived another year". We all need to be grateful for each birthday we celebrate. I've known far too many young people that left here many years before my 37th. Take a moment, thank God for the breathe in your lungs and enjoy the years He gives you.

Happy birthday, Stacy. Oh, to be 37 again...

Happy Birthday, dear friend. I pray that you have many, many more. Enjoy your "time away" from us, enjoy your family, and enjoy shopping!

When I turned 50 last year, the first words out of my mouth when I woke up that morning were "Well, I made it". I am grateful that we live in a day and age where it's possible to have a life expectancy of 76 years of age (or older). Life is too much of a gift to worry about our earthly age.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you even better over this next year!

Happy birthday, young lady!

The 7th is my step-daughter's birthday, the 10th is my brother's, and the 17th my own...

...but not being so young as you, I'll leave the year to your imagination

Life begins at 40--which means you're still minus 3.

Friend, live long and prosper, but most of all live for Him.

Feliz cumpleanos a tu, mi amiga. (Sorry I don't have the accents or the tilde available, but...) [This is what you get when you've got two high schoolers studying Spanish and your wife took French...]

Happy (belated) Birthday. Remember you are only as old as you feel. Which makes me about 96.

hayy birthday, Stacy. 37? You're still a baby. Just wait until the big 4-0, which I recently experienced. :)

Have a GREAT day. :)
