Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. ~Mark Twain

It's midnight.
My birthday.
I am up...alone. Of course.
What person in their right mind would be up at this hour (especially when the alarm follows oh so quickly once my head hits the pillow)?
I spent the eve of my birthday (at least the last 2 hours since the rest of the family went to bed) in a peaceful state. Remembering my youth, my family, my motherhood, my husband and how they all together made up the last 39 years.
Lots of good times...wonderful times...the best of times.
Some bad...but who wants to remember those...right?
Mistakes made and lessons learned, disappointments and pleasures, sorrow and elation.
Life is good...no great. I am loved everyday. I laugh till I can't breathe everyday. I figure as long as you laugh as long as you breathe and love as long as you live...then your doing alright.
Happy birthday to me....and many more!

Also, happy 23rd anniversary of our first date honey...love, your gidget

Happy Birthday to my precious baby. I remember when you were born. Actually, I don't actually remember the birth because they put me to sleep for that, but I remember all of the pain. It was definitely worth it!! You were so tiny (just 4 1/2 lbs.) and when your Daddy held you in the palm of his hand and you wet all over him because your diaper was WAY too big for you. He didn't mind one bit either. You were so cute and you've gotten even more precious and beautiful as the years have gone by. I am so blessed to have you in my life. I love you.
