Celebrating Friends and ....
Posted On 10/18/2020 14:37:09 by yourchoice

Happy Sunday to All of my friends, on and off our Social Networks... 

I've been playing in different places the last couple of weeks, most activities didn't involve my computer. I've been having so much fun celebrating a "significant" birthday... and I'm already looking forward to the next one. I have received a pile of greeting cards (most are not on paper), and haven't seen a scrap of wrapping paper or plastic ribbon. 

So what was happening... how did I celebate? Firstly, I'm so thankful to have this birthday. My mother passed away when she was 64 years old and I thought she was an old lady. I hope that doesn't make my "as old as dirt". I'm thankful for every day that I'm here, sharing it with my dear husband of almost six decades, our adult children and their precious families, and a crowd of friends. I loved the flowers that arrived home ... he still buys roses! The phone calls were special... many long distance calls, as well as from neighbors. Long-time friends treated me to a trip to the mountains, and a quiet lunch in a small town near us. I was even able to celebrate our birthdays (only 10 days apart) together  with a friend that I met over 60 years ago. We haven't always lived within travelling distances, but have celebrated as often as we could. Of course, I feel it necessary to remind her that she is 10 days older than I am!!!!

Time constraints and work scheduled didn't quite fit with several family members, but we were able to celebrate Thanksgiving and my birthday with a wonderful home-cooked meal. Of course, we missed those who were not able to join us, but that doesn't mean we don't look forward to any opportunity to be together, no matter the date on the calendar.

The internet has given the opportunity to connect with family, no matter where they are located,  and develop friendships with many who I may never meet in person. I consider that to be a special gift.

Wonderful.  I always celebrate the anniversary of my 29th birthday.  I have had 29 of them.  When people ask I tell them I am old enough to know better and too young to care.

Congratulations... you made it.  Thank you for sharing.
