Heading for my half century birthday on Sunday ......
« on: June 11, 2010, 03:18:24 pm »
I cannot believe I will be 50.  There again, I recall saying the same when I was forty!!!

The only good thing is, people say I don't look my age (probably because I am small and slim, thank  goodness!) and I have a young voice too I am told.

Only a few grey hairs among my red hair - another good thing. All my family are redheads, and an uncle died in his eighties with not a grey hair in sight.

So there are a few blessings to be grateful for!!

Have definitely slowed up though - used to be really agile, and do gymnastics.  I don't think I will attempt any of those moves though, far too creaky!!!

Roxy it's just a number, since I hit 40 2 years ago everything went way downhill let me tell you. Have a great day on Sunday. Anyway do they not say 50 is the new 40? :bouquet:

Hey, what are you two worried about - I am chuffed, in the last few days I've been told three times that I don't look my age - I'm 66!!!!!  I reckon it's my round fat face that keeps me young  ;) ;D ;D ;D

Happy Birthday for Sunday, Roxy! :wave: :bouquet:
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Oh thank you, Daisy .....no .....not far off the same age as you, am I?  My mum was telling me, my sister in law tried to send me a card last year with 50 on, until my Mum stopped her!!  There again, the same lady sent my Mum a massive bunch of flowers, posh teddy, and lovely 8oth birthday card.  Mum was pleased with the gifts .....but miffed because she was actually not 80 .....just 79!!!

Birthday Blessings


Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings now,
As your birthday nears.


Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.


Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.


Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"
