Thankful for birthdays :)

“Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.” Sammy Hagar 

 

Today I am thankful that age, especially this particular age, is nothing more than a number 🙂 Tweet this!

Today I am thankful for having existed on this sweet green earth for 50 years; others I know have not made it.

Today I am thankful for my job, my family, my friends; there are many who have none of these while struggling to make ends meet.

Today I am thankful for general good health and a body which does what I want it to do most of the time; be happy if you still have all of your senses and limbs!

Today I am thankful that with God’s help I survived downsizing, divorce and death of loved ones; life for many during these trials can end in depression or suicide.

Today I am just thankful that I can be thankful; gratitude is important along with humility because pride always goes before a fall.

Guess what I am really saying is: I made it!

Happy Birthday to me 🙂

Hope you enjoy my 2014 birthday thoughts as well as seeing how you can make your own birthday really special – just like Oprah 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday! The year I turned 50, we partied. I went to Atlanta and saw my daughter, then to Minnesota to see my sister, and in-between the husband and I went out as well. I was not going to be miserable over it.

    I loved the 5 perfect 10’s – that’s great!

    Enjoy yourself!!
