ANOTHER BIRTHDAY....ANOTHER CELEBRATION






Hmmmmmm....
to celebrate being another year older or not?


This is an age my younger self could not fathom.....
never really considered it.....


I made a decision to enjoy the moments..without worrying about photos...
but I did manage a few...such as this heart-felt hug
from our Catherine to the darling.....

I am now eligible for Medicare...
how very strange the words.....
but, on the other hand....
how grateful I feel to have arrived.....


Here's to the next chapter and more adventures old girl....

  3. Happy Birthday! These can be the Sexy Sixties! You do look great! I'll soon be 69 and I am still trying to wrap my head around not being 'young' anymore. I married young and had children young - at least the first two! I was always the youngest in any group. Then I had two more children in my late 40's and homeschooled them. It was funny that the other mothers in the group were the ages of my grown children and even went to school with them! That began the phase of being the oldest in most groupings. Me my goal is to grow old as gracefully as possible and enjoy the journey. I wish the same for you, my sweet friend!

  7. Happy Birthday Betsy! You certainly don't look like you're 65! It looks like you enjoyed your special day with your sweetie and family. You'll have to let us younger ones know how that whole Medicare thing works out. It seems a bit daunting, making sure one is signing up for the right coverage and at the right time. I'll be 59 next month, and as fast as these years are flying by, I'll be right there with you before I know it! Have a wonderful week.

    1. Then an early happy birthday to you Miss Connie...we will not need Medicare until the darling retires and I will tell you it will be far more expensive than our current group insurance..it is a maze like no other. But those issues are for another day and in the future...enjoy your week love.

It's laughter, fun and gratefulness that keeps us moving forward. I feel we have earned it, so keep on moving and seize every pleasure. I wish for you many many more
