Yes, today is my birthday!  And I type this with the biggest smile.  Those of you who know me well, know that I LOVE MY birthday.  The one day I can be selfish without feeling guilty because it’s all about me!  And I do start my own personal celebrating about two weeks before and wrap it up about two weeks after.  A birthday season, if you will.

But I am choosing to acknowledge this birthday without it being about aging.  Don’t get me wrong, I have no problem admitting my chronological age, which is 48.  But I am choosing to celebrate things I am most proud of and my accomplishments in the past year.  No longer going to celebrate just because I am still here.  Yes, it is a privilege to grow old and I am very thankful to God for that.  But aging is optional!

  1. You’re only as young as you feel! So keep active, in body and mind, and get on back to the green hills and lovely scenes of Ireland one day soon! Happy Birthday, my friend!!
