Birthdays are special days indeed. What do we think about on a birthday? I tend to think about Family. My parents and siblings, Grandparents and long time friends. Here I am one year older and wondering where all the time went. I have post photos of birthday parties of yesteryear's, when I was turning 4 (oh I loved that cake). I remember it well, even to this day..Decades later!
I never had big parties as a child, it was always a family affair. In my twenties, I celebrated as young adults do....doing all those things a thought I missed out on, haha. The thirties just flew by. Lived in Europe during those years, the military friends tend to celebrate as a family. I was too far away from my parents and family. So the Military group was the family. Turning forty was said to be a big TADA...Well I do not remember it being that way. Was the year I became a first time (new)Mother. Some of you might remember the tired feeling. I celebrated with my Hubby and Parents we went out somewhere. Now turning Fifty..That I remember! Mom and Dad came up to visit, Hubby took me out to dinner and then back home to a surprise party. The neighbors and family all were here. I opened all sorts of funny gifts, still have some of them. Now here I am entering the Mid fifties...I feel like I am still ..I'll say 40... Mostly because I embarrass my family if I act like I'm 20.
Birthday are great times to reflect on all the Blessing I have received. I have a Great Husband of 32 years, a wonderful Daughter, a loving Father and many glorious memories of a beautiful Mother. They have all made my birthdays special for many years. I love you all.
