The Big One

Today I turned the big 60. This number doesn't seem to bother me for some reason. The only birthday that really hit hard was my 43rd. Don't know why but boy was I depressed when I turned 43. Before heading back home grandson Harvey and I made my birthday cake. He loved the pig in mud cake!

 This birthday except for normal aches and pains that people my age have I am in pretty good health. I need to move on from reading glasses to prescription because my eyesight sucks but again that is a age thing. I am able to to do chores around the homestead with just a tiny bit of complaining. Again age does things to your back. I am still able to garden, work in the yard and do housework without falling down, though I do have a hard time getting back up when I kneel to pull weeds. I still have most of my sense about me. Don't ask my family to agree on that one. (smile) My grandparents all lived to be in their 80's with one grandma living to a couple days shy of her 103rd birthday. A great grandmother lived to be 100. My mother was in her 80's and dad was in his 70's before passing away so guess I have a few years left in me. My daughter Megan called me the other night laughing. She and Barry were talking about nursing homes and she told him she needed to call me. So happy to know nursing homes remind my daughter of me. The one thing about birthdays is I seem to love myself a little more and enjoy life a lot more. Time goes way too fast as you get older and you so want to slow it down. I am very blessed to be 60 years old. I am very blessed to have a wonderful family and friends. I am very blessed however I look at this day.... my your day be overflowing with blessings.

Happy Birthday, Peggy... I hope you had a great day... Love your cake!!!!!

60 is YOUNG... Just wait til you are 70 (I'll be 71 in August)---and then you'll really feel the aches and pains ---and the eye problems. Dang it!!!!! ha

BUT--you are in great health because you stay so active. That is important... You will live a long and healthy life I'm sure...

Hugs to YOU,
Betsy
