They Say It's MY Birthday!

Just for ME!!

And now drum roll please....the Huge.....50!!!!! And I was going to post a smiling picture of myself except I have a ZIT on my chin....uh hello...I'm too old for that!!! This one kind of freaked me out...the birthday not the zit. But then I freaked at 30 and 40...and awoke with a brand new attitude each time..I hated my birthdays as a child and all the way till 29...Greg was really dreading me turning 30 cause I was so distraught at 29! But I woke up and went hey, I'm a grown up now...and I can say whatever I want! When I turned 40, I had the great revelation that I did not have to try to have the same body as I did when I was in my 20's...mind you, half of my 20's I was anorexic. I loved not feeling that "need" any more. And now with 50...I'm feeling strong, as in tough, as in don't mess with me...I'm FIFTY!! LOVE IT!!

Happy Birthday Jane! I pray that you have a wonderful day and just think of that zit as a sign that you are still so young!

I will be 48 in a few months and I am just embracing that last of my 40's - ha!

good attitude.
I know about each new decade being kind of traumatic.
I freaked at 30 too, then 40 and YES 50 was a little much...and in 1 1/2 years I will be 6o
Definite wonderful things come from aging...but I have to be honest. it kinda freaks me out.
I don't want to be 60
BUT I don't want to be dead.
sometimes I yearn to be young and thin and beautiful again.
But I love being "past" that nonsense as well.
I KNOW, I am not making much usual

but seriously, enjoy your birthday. 50 can be awesome. You grow into yourself.

and.....I am sorry Tennesse lost the basketball game. I watched the last half and was sooooo disappointed....was so very close!!!

Happy Birthday! There ought to be some kind of law against having a pimple and gray hair at the same time!

I hope you have a fabulous 50th year! Love ya girl! You are beautiful with those Bette Davis eyes!

Grace said...

My sister hit 50 on her last birthday... so I think I need to say I celebrated your 50th then.

I sorta freaked out when you said your birthday had been last wednesday... mine was too (but then I came here and realized... mine was the PREVIOUS wednesday... 24... not 31. Either way... Happy Birthday!

I remember you talking about going to that wedding last year. Stinks sometimes what happens in our lives, doesn't it?

Thanks for coming and visiting my piece of the world. Love ya... Happy Easter!
