It's my Birthday! Ü

Today is my 44th birthday....I thought they stopped becoming important...I thought I was done celebrating them when I got passed the age of 41..the age my Father died. Well, after diagnosis last summer we weren't sure if I was going to have another birthday so I'm back to celebrating them again.

We associate our Birthdays with getting older, another year closer to old age, I have a new outlook on them....it's 365 days of life! Time I get to spend with my beloved Jim, our kids, our family and friends! What is not to love about that?? I am feeling particularly smug this morning anyway......everyone we met on Friday night got my age wrong by 6 years!! Oh happy day!!!! They thought I was turning 38!! Even though chemo did a number on my skin I am still wrinkle free at 44!! I don't smoke, I drink only occasionally and in moderation when I do and I haven't worshiped the sun since I was 25....I have been using sun block all over since that age and I moisturize every night (Ok, ALMOST every night! lol) So it's paying off!! So I'm not going to ignore my birthdays, I'm not going gripe about being another year older....I'm going to celebrate the passing of another 365 days of life! And I'm not the kind of girl who passes up the opportunity to have cake! Who doesn't like cake anyway! So Happy Birthday to me!!!! lol lol lol

I am having breakfast with my Mom, lunch with a few girlfriends and then dinner with Jim and the kids....Japanese food my favorite!!!

I am one very lucky woman to have another birthday....so bring it on! lol lol lol

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! Sounds like it will be a great one. I'm like you I don't feel old so never say I'm getting older maybe just a year wiser. It's odd when we start getting older than our parents. My mother died when she was like 25 from cancer and I always had a fear of turning that age like something was gonna happen to me too. Glad you're here to celebrate this birthday and I know you'll be around to celebrate many more.
Take care, Chrissie

Yeah!!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!  You have so much to celebrate.  Birthdays are always important --they are the only day of the year you can eat all you want and not have to worry about calories!  They don't exsist on your birthday.  Party!!!!

Happy Birthday! I agree...I have been complaining about age since I was in college and I've been really trying lately to change it. Thanks for your entry it is a reminder to me...heck you can also think of it as more spankings! ;-) Make sure to have some fun with that! HA!
