Make a Wish and Blow out the Candles

Tuesday, December 27, 2011
A lady never tells her age....why not?

Today I turned 51.Wow! I can't believe I made it this far. Where has my life gone? To hell in a hand basket? Down the drain? Up a river without a paddle? Over the hill and through the woods?

I try to recall my life in one word, but I can't sum it up. I'm thankful just to be alive for one more day. I grateful to be sitting here and able to do the things I enjoy.

So when I blow out the candles on my cake my wish will be I survive another year in tact, with my wits about me, all my original body parts and make it to fifty-two!

Happy birthday to me!
