Happy Birthday to Me!

As I begin to write this post, my birthday will be in 12 minutes.  It's sad when I think about how excited I would get during my youth while counting down the hours until "my" day.  It was like a Christmas morning all over again, but my birthdays were all about me.  However, these days I would  prefer to forget about them and act like they're just another day.  More often than not, I'll shed a tear...or two. 

I don't know why I get all emotional now, but I can only guess that subconsciously, I know I'm gradually getting old.  Why I let that bother me, I don't know.  My life, thus far, has been wonderful.  Always surrounded by family and friends and generally happy all the time.  Yes, I have my moments...

I really couldn't have asked for much more.  I was born into a wonderful family.

I married my best friend and soul mate, thus becoming part of another fabulous family.

Watched our beautiful daughter get married and gained a son.

Then was blessed with the most handsome grandsons ever!

 So, in reality, I need to count my blessings and thank God for another year.  I just hope that the next 29 years are just as happy!  :)
