Today is my 55th birthday. That sounds like such an enormous age! I have a problem with my brain remembering I am that age and not 30. I was at a cookout on Saturday with my oldest kids who are 30, and their friends who practically lived at my house during the teen years and now have families of their own - Where did the time go? A few minutes ago I was ordering Pizzas and making cookies by the truckload and now they are talking about advanced degrees and mortgage interest rates. Life is good!
Now that I have hit the ripe old age of 55 I understand a tad more the verse that says with God 1 of his days is as a thousand years with men. With our experience of time past (memory) there is almost no feeling of time. It does seem like yesterday I was trying to figure out how to buy back to school clothes and pay the rent, or bringing them home from the hospital..... I have always made the choice to remember the sweet things in life. Let the hardships and injustices go, they hold no good thing for today.
I have received some very beautiful birthday cards:
There are even more I haven't photo'd yet
I feel so very blessed!
I'm going to leave you a gift of some sweet images:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a happy day!
