Lookin' forward: if forty seven this much fun, forty eight is gonna be G R E A T !!
... having journey'd thru
this year my own self,
I think I know what
I'm talkin' about:
forty seven is
a hard road, indeed.
joints that were once spry
s t i f f e n up with age;
grey makes unwant'd
the health fades along
with what mind we had;
but I'm here, I'm HERE,
livin' and lovin',
takin' time to stop
and smell the roses,
countin' the blessings
for havin' surviv'd
another year. I'm
gonna dance like it's my
birthday (even tho
it's not), c e l e b r a t e
the fact I'm a l i v e !!
a verrrrrrry merry
unbirthday to me
and to you, as well!

I'm hitting the big fifty this May and I feel the same way you do...it's only going to get better :-)
