So FUN...

Having a birthday on Facebook is SO FUN.
That's a book I found when Googling 'cold birthday'.

I particularly liked Myra's 'Happy Brrrrrthday'... since it was so cold.  (Love it.)
Oh, and Kathy's..... which I re-read a few times.
And thanks everyone else for all the innovative ways you wished me 'Happy Birthday!'
Oh, and the song Andrew and Anna sang to me! Mm.

So what did I do yesterday to celebrate (besides reading all my wonderful FB birthday wishes)?  I stayed in my pajamas all day.  Yes, ALL DAY!!!
(I know. Some of you so wish you could do that (stay home from work).  Well, hopefully someday you can. Until then you can live vicariously through me. I don't mind.)

I did nothing yesterday... Well, I watched several old "Law and Order Criminal Intent" episodes....
I also got out some old journals I'd written in the mid '90s... and read through them.  Whoa. I was busy and stressed back then. ... ah, but the Lord was always reminding me of his wonderful presence - which so calmed me.   (Reading old journals is great - it tells you what your life was like earlier - and how far you've come.... and I'VE COME A LONG WAY, BABY!!)

Oh, and Sam went and got take-out at Rosa's Cafe.... and I overate, of course.

Back to reading the old journals. I hadn't done that in years.... They made me really like being my age now.  I'm older, wiser, and I don't worry so much about what people think of me.   Whew!

So there ARE pluses to aging.
(I'll write more on that later.)

For now here are two cartoons I found that I (kind of) like....

I always get onto my peers when they say how OLD they are getting (i.e. close to 30). I'm like, whatever we are so young! I say "If you start feeling old now, you will be forever feeling old." It's all relative and it's just a number.

Glad you had a cozy snug birthday!
