My sister-n-law had a birthday last Saturday…..
I’ll be nice and not divulge her age….
My Mama turned 74 on Sunday, thank the good Lord. After a long battle of sickness since February, she has finally begun to act like her old self again. Proof those prayers were heard and answered.
Happy Birthday Mama!But………..
Who plans a surprise 50th birthday party for their bestest friend and forgets their camera….ME, that’s who, the photographer in the bunch. I guess I would have forgotten my head too if it had not been so attached to my shoulders. They sort of like each other like that. All the planning and decorating went well for Saturday night…Becky was totally surprised. We pulled it off without a hitch, or slip of the tongue. She had NO clue! It’s nice to surprise someone…We decked her out in all the old familiar “over the hill” garb, with all things black and dreary. You know death is knocking on your door at age 50! Ha ha, I sure hope NOT! I feel a few aches and pains now and again but as I always say “You are as young as you feel and act.” I’m still growing up everyday. Learning and rethinking life’s curve balls and detours. I’ve lived long enough to know that when certain things are set into motion you cannot stop the inevitable changes.
