October 1st - Happy Birthday to ME!

Another birthday for me today...

...I remember thinking about turning the dreaded "FOUR- ZERO" - and it wasn't all that bad - actually, it was one of the best birthdays ever! Single again for the first time in 22 1/2 years - a whole new life ahead of me - a life where only one vote counted - MINE!

Today, it is 'okay' to be fifty-something... I'm 'okay' with me... 'okay' with my life. Realizing it is 'okay' to NOT be perfect - I'm fine with that. Life is good - I'm where I should be right now. My partner, Mr. Wonderful, is the love of my life - it is great to be married to my very best friend. Salt and pepper hair color offers no worries either - heck - I've even gotten compliments on the looks of it! We love living here in the peaceful woods, love our dogs, my horse, our chickens, and our little house birds. So much to be thankful for - good friends, our great families, and my hubby's job (with me "investigating" other employment opportunities...!) Yes, it is all good!

Let's listen to the Birthday Song - Just one more time!!! Another birthday for me today - Happy Birthday - HoOrAy!

I thought 30 was the hardest. I thought I was leaving my youth forever. I did and it was great!

Now I'm in my 60's and most of the worry is gone. You're right about being happy with a good man and friends, animals and a wonderful place to live. It's all part of accepting who we are.
The gray hair doesn't bother me. It represents my survivorship.
After 40 you've earned every year and you deserve everything that makes you happy.
Best Wishes to you....

Happy Birthday to you!! Happy Birthday to you!!! Hope you have a great day. You share a birthday with my uncle who is 59 today and another lady in our church...don't know her age though. Around my mother's age. I hope you have a good day!! Oops, I already said that.:-)

I remember my big 4-0. I was not a happy camper for that birthday. I hated it. But now I am fine with being 50-something also. I turn another 50-something in December. And I am not covering up my gray either. :-)...too much work...LOL!
Besides, I have earned it!!

I will have to come back and listen to the Corgi's singing when I have my hearing aids on. LOL!

Now I gotta go and get ready for work.

Monica, I actually have your birthday marked on my calendar! Happy happy bday dear girl. Have it on my blog too that it's your special day. Mine is the
9th. 30 was tough for me, the rest, not so bad. I'm happier now at almost 58, than at 18,28,38...so that's good. Had to get my new driver's license today...it's good for 6 years but was 21 bucks!
If you need to renew yours, be prepared to empty your pockets! Take care, and eat lots of cake! Love, love, love the corgi song!
Perfection!!
