It's my party, again!!

This year has flown by! I just wrote this post last week so why is it my birthday again??? The years come and go faster and faster each passing year, and unless I'm going to live to be 114, I think I'm past middle age, in the autumn of my life, OLD.

Except for the aches and pains, I don't feel old. I feel just like I did when I was in my 20's! But when I look in the mirror, there is this strange woman looking back! She has wrinkles! She could stand to lose a few lbs. too!

She is likes comfort over beauty in shoes and clothes. I mean who is she??? I know that can't possibly be me!

The man in the picture with me is the best birthday gift any one could ever receive! He's truly the gift that keeps on giving and I'm so thankful to have him!!!



It's been a great year! Maybe I will live to 114 after all!

I left you a message on FB, but I think you deserve two! Have a wonderful day today! And, it's true...we never age inside! And that's a good thing! I, for one, am very happy that my inside doesn't match my outside!

Happy Birthday NancyGrace! Happy Birthday. I came to you through my sister's blog, Debbie @ There's An Angel On My Frontporch. I love your blog. I have signed up to follow it, and I would love it if you popped over and read my, and signed up to follow it as well. I have to tell you birthdays are such a gift. I look forward to them. You know birthdays remind us that we are getting that much closer to our beautiful final destination with God. What a wonderful gift to receive when we finally get there and see the cities of Gold. So Happy Birthday. You don't look a day over 20 something. Have a wonderful day and hope to see you soon. Country Hugs and Love, Sherry

Just a little something from Judy said...

I smiled and nodded in agreement as I read down through this post, and I asked myself the same questions. Happy Birthday dear friend! You and your husband both look good!! I wish you many more birthdays together. Thank you for putting into words what I so often feel.
