Birthday thoughts

Tomorrow, June 23rd is my birthday.
While others may look at New Year's Eve as a time of reflection; I look at my birthday for doing that.

I feel older.

I believe those words that my grandma used to say ; that time flies as you get older, that you will never get to do over any day.

I can remmber riding in the back seat of their Buick after enjoying my 11th birthday (grandpa always took us for rides in the evening time). My grandma asked if I had a great day. I replied , yes. She said she was glad because honey,you only get one 11th birthday, one time to celebrate that day.

I think of where I have come from, I think about where I want to be, what I want to do.

I miss those that are already gone from my life.
I miss my girls being little and making me homemade, crayon drawn birthday cards.
I miss the world of nursing. I miss taking care of others.
I want to see things and places. I want to walk along the ocean again in my life.
I want a house, a real house.
I want to surround myself with good people- people I love.
I want others to know that even though I may not see them every day, they are thought of.
I want to use my birthdays to make me a better person.

I want Key Lime Pie instead of birthday cake.


  1. Happy Birthday! It is good to have dreams. I hope they all come true for you!


  2. Happy Birthday!! Hope you had a great day!! I hope that all your wishes and dreams come true!!

  3. I always tell my kids to remember the simple things-- like riding in the car and having a great conversation. Those are the precious times that don't lose value as you grow old. I remember riding in my grandparent's car in the summertime and the good talks I had with my mom in her car when I was a teen.
    Great post. Thanks for sharing!
