Na na na na na, you say it's your birthday.....

It's my birthday too yeah. So, today I'm 47 years old. I guess that makes me middle aged or something, if I live another 47 years I'll be 94. The last 47 have really gone by quickly, I mean it hardly feels like 3 years short of a half century! I'm glad that I've experienced the many things that I have experienced. I'm glad that I lived through some perilous times, that I have a beautiful family, a wonderful husband and a new adventure on the horizon to show for it all. As I reflect today on this piece of time that is called my life, I realize that although there has been a lot of pain....something beautiful always seems to come from the pain. So...without further adieu, I have decided on a name for my band when I get it. Drum roll please......PEARL, it's the only precious stone that is created from pain and irritation.

So, I'm waiting for my Pearl people, just give me the sand (band)!!!!

Have a great day. And, thanks for being a part of my journey!

Happy Birthday!! Don't worry, you aren't old! I am almost 55 years young, and so far age hasn't meant anything to me! It is just a number. You look great & just think, next year, you will look even greater!!!
