Yesterday was my birthday, and I turned 62 years old. I'm owning it ok? You see, two years ago when I turned 60, I had the hardest time accepting it! I know it sounds kinda stupid...cuz ya can't really do anything about it...but I just did not wanna turn 60!
You see, I am really still a little girl at heart! On the inside...in my spirit I still feel young. See some of my dolls in the background? I mean I still love dolls, and teddy bears, and all things "girlie". But my body sometimes just doesn't feel young at all. If I get down on my knees to clean something it is sooo hard to get up! It is hard to clean the things up high too, and I am unsteady on ladders. So, my husband has let me get a cleaning lady to come and help me with the hard stuff once a month. And that has been a blessing. (She is a wonderful Christian gal who happens to be one of my daughter's very good friend.)
Turning 62 does have one benefit...I got to sign up for my social security! So it ain't all bad! (:>)
All kidding aside...I spent my birthday counting my blessings and thanking God for all of them. God is so good! I have a wonderful husband, and three beautiful daughters who have filled my life with love! I love their spouses too...and I also love all 11 of my sweet grandchildren who range in ages from 5 to almost 22. We also have grandchildren in heaven. By God's grace I have made it this far, and I am looking forward to each day of my future with Christ!
I also have many wonderful friends and extended family members who brighten my life! And I can't forget my blogging buddies! Have a blessed day sweet blogging friends!
In His Love,
