So I am 50 years old! I was dreading it, feeling so very old after my surgery. Thought I would never feel good again. It has been a month now that I am feeling better. This is September, and my surgery was last December.....
Anyway, I have a very sad birthday, 9-11. Every year I try to celebrate it after my birthday, but still it is just too sad. So this year things worked out to see my boys and my grand-kids before my birthday. My husband took advantage and on an impulse got a cake and some candles with the big numbers. It was amazing!
We had grilled steaks, cake and ice cream, and we had card games too. I have had a great weekend and not thought about 9-11 at all.
So I am planning to celebrate my birthday on the 1st of September from now on. I am also thinking that this is going to be a fantastic year! I am getting strong again, and I am so thin from loosing all that weight from my appendix rupturing. I am starting to have enough energy to get through the day too. My gallery has out grown itself in it's first year, and I am already preparing to move to a bigger place!!!!! God is so good. I am so blessed to be alive, and I am looking forward to the years ahead.
