Birthday Girls


The great thing about getting older is that
you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.

~Madeleine L’Engle~


Birthdays are good for you.
The more you have the longer you live.

Wrinkles here and there seem unimportant
compared to the Gestalt of the whole person
I have become in the past year.

It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams
because they grow old, they grow old
because they stop pursuing their dreams.

Birthday card from my sister

Birthday card from my sister

I turned 65 today and my little Hannah is 3.  I love that we were born on the same day – we were meant for each other!

There are a lot of things I could say about turning 65  (gadzooks!  I think it means I’m officially a senior citizen) but all I will say now is I’m happy to be growing older and  look forward to all the opportunities that lie ahead.


Age is opportunity no less,
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

~Henry Wadsorth Longfellow~

      I love that picture of Hannah too – my birthday buddy. Age as opportunity – a good thing to remember. And thanks for being a constant source of inspiration for me.
