HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
I have to admit that I'm closer to the "end" than I am to the beginning and although I hope to have many more years there is a sense that I should make everyday count. Far from perfect, I am nevertheless grateful that time has brought me to a place where I am less angry, more forgiving and a little wiser about what's really important.
One of my darling granddaughters said to me a while back... "Grandma, how old will you be when you die?" I laughed and said... 88 Eight has always been my lucky number so I figured double eight was even better. She seemed satisfied and trotted off to play.
Here's to another 23 years of enjoying this beautiful world!
