It's my Birthday...and I'll cry if I want to!

Yes, it's's my birthday. I am now 38. My friends and family know how difficult my birthdays are for me. Ever since my 25th birthday, I have really suffered through each and every one of my birthdays. When I turned 25 I went through a horrible depression because I felt like 30 was just around the corner and then 40 would be shortly after that. And you know what? That is exactly what has happened! If I had my way, I would stay 25 forever. But one quick glance in the mirror and I know that is not reality.

My birthdays are now just a reminder to me that I am getting older. Time just goes so fast that I feel like I don't get to enjoy the time that is rushing by at the speed of light. Well, unfortunately now I can't say I am 37 any longer. Now I have to say that I am 38! Gosh darnit!

Happy birthday girlfriend! You are such a blessing, no matter your age! Revel in it! My Gram, who just turned 95, is proof that you're only as old as you feel. I know, some days, "I" feel 95, but its all in attitude! Chin up girl! I'd make you a chocolate martini if you were here, or I was there! Celebrate! If it makes you feel any better, you'll always be 8 years younger than ME! :-D Love ya!

I am not even going to tell you how much younger you are than me but you know, you are only as old as you feel and I don't feel old. Before I married my DH, I had issues, since there are only 17 years difference between us but he told me I don't look nor act my age. I took that as a good thing and probably will never act my age. Heck in my head I am still back at 18 years old.

Enjoy the age you are at and be glad you are around to see another year.
