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!
