It Happened to Me


Remember when we were young at age 15 and we thought 21 was old?

And then when we were 21 we thought 30 was old ~~~ and 45 and 50?

Well, I won’t deny it!  Sixty really does sound old and now here I am!!

But I’ve had two cakes







And Not One…






Not just Two…







But THREE celebrations!







And even a friend to turn sixty with!





And did I mention

I have so many people who love me and I love them back more than they’ll ever know…


And this man who has been by my side for almost forty years..


Mr. Brown Socks





A sister to share life and inside jokes and secrets with



And our  mother is still active and healthy





Three little grandsons who find humor in everything, even a sixty birthday party for their Grammie!



And three daughters who fill my heart to the brim with love…


A friend pointed out that I have my health, my ability to live life to the fullest and a world full of loving friends and family to remind me


Really isn’t all that bad.  It’s just another number, right?  Okay, there I’ve said it, “I’m Sixty!”

God has Richly Blessed Me!

It looks like you had a wonderful birthday, and a wonderful family to share it with. I just had the same birthday in December. It is quite a shock, isn't it? :)

In the old days we really DID think anyone over 30 was ancient! Age is just a number- it's how we feel and act that counts. Plus, we gotta make ourselves look as good as we feel inside. LOL Happy B-Day wishes to you, Donna! hugs, Sue P.S. I'll be there soon enough! :-)
