My 65th birthday - oh, my goodness! :)

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Yup, somehow it's happened - I'm 65 today. emoticon
No deep thoughts, I'm afraid, just frankly surprised to have been on this Earth that long...wow...honestly seems like more than one lifetime. All I can say is, "I guess I'm not done."

I'm grateful to have been allowed to come to a place of greater gentleness and calm, more laughter, and more honest caring - each of these at least SOME of the time!
emoticon
A little weight loss, more intentional activity, and some specific knowledge - all from SP - have helped improve my physical condition and my emotional balance in just seven months. Again, wow...

Thank you for the gift of that life, all of you. May this year be a banner one for each of us!

    OH , I am SOOOOOOO sorry I missed your birthday !!! I don't go on my e-mail often so i never know when someone posts until I look at their blogs.

    I hope your day was filled with the same joy that having you as a friend brings to us.

    Happy Birthday Gail! emoticon

    Hope you have a wonderful day and most important, a wonderful year filled with loved ones, good times and much laughter..
    Just think, you are entering your 65th year healthier and happier than the year before. Isn't it amazing what 7 short months can bring? Can't wait to see what your SP journey will be like this year. I am glad to be part of your journey.
    Enjoy your day my friend, you deserve it! emoticon emoticon emoticon
