No matter how old we get I guess we should be thankful we’re here, alive and kicking another year! The alternative isn’t necessarily great is it, unless the afterlife is as great as some people believe?
I don’t usually care about the whole age thing, I don’t dwell on it but as the numbers go up, sometimes I can’t but help feel age catching up with me when I turn around and remember being young especially living in this “youth oriented” world where I no longer feel as young as yesterday.
I remember loving my birthday and so looking forward to it. The sleepover parties where we stayed up all night were great. Now I can’t wait to sleep all day!
I wouldn’t even mind forgetting about birthdays, but it’s always nice when people do recognize it by sending cards, calling and sending e-mails.
My sons and husband love to spoil me with presents, lunches, dinners and their company.
How do you like to spend your birthday?
