Happy Birthday Baby Girl!


Those were the words I heard this morning from my little Mama......I suppose you are never truly grown in a Mother's eyes........even on the day you turn 60. And although I have never been one to "tell my age" thinking that a woman that will tell you how old she is will tell you anything, I feel especially blessed and lucky to have made it this far into life. When you consider that the alternative to growing older is death, then it is really something to look forward to. So what if it comes with the aches and pains of older bones.....it at least "comes"......I mean, two weeks ago I was waiting on the results of a bone scan to tell me if I had cancer again, so turning 60 isn't gonna scare me a bit! So on this day that I always thought was "old", I will put on my "big girl panties" and get on with what I have done everyday since I can remember.....and that is loving my family, laughing at my animals, and figuring out what I am going to do today that, at the end of the day, will make me feel I have accomplished something else I can mark off my "list".....but first I'm gonna spend my Victoria Secret gift card on something very red!
