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
guest appearances;
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!

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (3/12)

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!! and to your sister too :-)

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

I was thinking the other day......isn't it about time the fashion world does a thing about beauty for the older women, showing the beauty of grey? I've never felt so good.......and everyone wants me to dye my hair.........not likely......I love it :-)

Every body hates the symptoms of old age such as the stiffening of the joints. But we all like to live longer.
The weaker your joints get, the greater your wisdom.

Thank you very much.
