54th Birthday and Valentines Day!

Today I turned 54.  Every day, every birthday is much more precious when you have a serious illness. I intend on celebrating everything, and not feel guilty about that extra slice of pizza, or cake, or drink!  AND of course I want presents..lots of them..I'll use them lol.  Someone asked me yesterday, do you feel older?  and nope I dont...I dont feel i look older, (yet) and I dont feel like my mind thinks older...but when I get up from the chair or couch,,,my bones remind me, I'm not that young anymore.  otherwise, no i do not.  I think the 50's is the new 30's.  Women are looking beautiful well into old age these days...gorgeous.  If i could lose more weight, tone up--I wouldnt mind myself to much.  A never ending journey that is.  I'm so eager for spring, I cant stand it anymore. I purchased some pretty flowery, bird plates in anticipations.  I'll have to take a picture and post it this week.  It just feels like spring is in the air, its knocking.  I"m soooo excited!

12 Thanks for your comments!:

Happy Birthday Dawn!
I just e-mailed you too, sorry I am so late.
And my dear, you look beautiful and 54 is not old at all!
I want spring so bad too, my bones aches for it.
This really cold weather does make me ache and maybe since I am a year older than you that is why! hehe.
Big Hugs,
Cindy

Oh sweet Dawn....my heart goes out to you, sweetie. The comment you left me sounded so sad, and I just wanted you to know that I will be keeping you in my prayers. I read your posts about the battle that you're fighting and know that you are not alone in this. You have prayer warriors out here who are lifting you up and sending you strength. Knowing that you have a supportive family system to help you through this is a blessing. Hold tight to them and know that they won't let you down. God is holding tight to you, too, Dawn - and he won't let you down either. Praying you to healing, girlie...

xoxo laurie
