Today is my birthday!

I can't believe it...I am 48 years old already.  I remember when I was a little girl, thinking that I'd be too old to appreciate anything when the new millenium came.  I was 37 when the calendar flipped over to 2000 and I was definitely not too old to appreciate anything...

Fast forward 11 years and I still feel young.  Vibrant.  Joyful.  Downright happy.  My life is so wonderful (which is not the same as perfect...is there such a thing?).  I just feel so fortunate to have been blessed with all that I have been given.  It is humbling, how fortunate I am...surrounded by love and laughter to insulate me from the trials and tribulations that touch all of our lives.


So, Happy Birthday to Me...I am a lucky woman!

Happy Birthday! I think I can speak for all of us when I say we are pretty darn lucky to have you in our lives as well. I am sorry that I can't be there to help you celebrate your special day. Love you much!
