Happy Birthday to me

Trying to muster up the thankfulness to feel blessed to have another birthday. I am healthy, alive, have a job, a roof over my head, food and clothing. (and course my laptop - what would I do without that?)

I remember clearly last year on this day crying because my father said he was too sick to come over and I was thinking, but he may not be here for my next birthday...I was angry too.

I sat home alone last night feeling a little blue because my "best" friend whom is not really a best friend anymore did not ask if I wanted to go out or anything. She just put a card in my mailbox 3 days ago, saying have fun on your birthday. Even if she couldn't do anything this weekend, there was no offer of another time. So, here I sat stuffing my face and watching the Golden Girls. I guess throwing the ol pity party, but trying to also remind myself that not every birthday is eventful and not every birthday has a celebration with it. I had a hectic week and needed to relax anyway.

My boys are with their Dad and they did not call me.

My mom did ask if I want to go to lunch today or movies and I think I will take her up on the movie offer because I was going to go by myself. I've come to realize my mom really is my only best friend.
And now that I'm older, I realize that's not a bad thing at all, in fact I'm lucky to still have my mom here with me. More than lucky.

Hoping 41 will be a good year and hoping I will not look another year older.

Happy Birthday to you!
Think of it this way--you are spending your birthday with the best person you know--your super-fabulous-wonderful-special self.

And of course your thousands of SI friends.

I hope all your birthday wishes come true!

watching the Golden Girls

Maybe that's the problem

Sorry you find yourself feeling down on your birthday and reflecting on painful things like your dad, the boys and your "friend".

My mum has also become my bff during this saga. Definitely go see a movie. Its all about you today, do what makes you happy.
