I turned gulp...49 today! 30 didn't bother me, 40 didn't bother me, I think the next number will.....
I feel fortunate to celebrate, today! My Dad only made it to 45... There are a lot of family illnesses, that took people, very young! I want to thank all of you, that have wished me a Happy Birthday!!! I feel blessed to have so many kind friends! I am so happy I did the A-Z blogging challenge and met so many new people~ It is amazing, the kindness, support and compassion, from people...Blogging does bring out
the best in most of us!
I think we need to celebrate every year, we have lived, it is a rite of passage, but also a wonderful way to
mark the day, to create memories with your family and friends! Everyone deserves cake! I am known to be the Cake Nazi...see I love to bake. If I make you a cake, you better eat it by a certain time or I start cutting it up and take it to the neighbors. My brother nicknamed me this, one year; I made him a cake and told him to take it home. Oh no, it will be fine at Mom's house; I was temporarily living at Mom's house; My husband was away on deployment. The kids and I had decide to stay in the area. He came back the next day, I left him one piece of cake and had given it all away. I can't have it in the house, I will eat it....so, YOU better eat it or take it with you(think soup nazi on "SEINFELD", except for me, it's cake). I have a lot of cake left and I sure wish I could give you a piece! German chocolate cake with rich dark chocolate icing with the coconut n' pecan topping...it is too rich. One bite really is enough.... I tried to give it away....a few took some, but there is a lot left. I won't eat anymore, but I don't want the temptation in the house!
You start to think at what age, were you at your best, or felt your best, if you could go back for a week, what
age would it be...for me, it would be 25yrs old. On my birthday, the Navy celebrated 75 yrs of Naval Aviation we were in Pensacola, FL. They had fireworks that were like the grand finale all evening long...Don and I went to a show, saw Bob Hope, Brooke Shields, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jonathan Winters...it was
