Can I Have a Little Wisdom with that?

Today I am celebrating a milestone birthday.. This past year has been a year of discovery, of growth and learning. I managed to get through all my earlier years, mysteriously oblivious to many truths. This past year, truth blind-sided me, then sent me on a journey of searching for Lily. I am happy to declare that I am brand new, re-invented, unmasked and ready to embrace this coming year with enthusiasm and joy.heronssunset

My friend and writing coach gave me beautiful roses to celebrate and she picked my favorite colour. Patti, you are the best. ( her blog is t )

Thank you for the beautiful roses Patti

Speaking of joy and fun, I wanted to have a birthday laugh this morning as I enjoyed my morning coffee. I discovered that a lot of people (many of them unknown) have had some funny things to say about birthdays and age. These are a few that gave me a giggle

I’m sixty years of age.  That’s 16 Celsius.  ~George Carlin, Brain Droppings, 1997. (And since I live in Canada, I muct be around 16 years old now. Another great advantage to being a Canadian)

The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age. ~Lucille Ball

 Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.   C. Joad  (I recommend getting rid of the vinegar and sticking to the wine, I know I did)

Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself. – By Tom Wilson

They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body. – By Unknown Author

  1. Love you Mom. It’s been an extremely rough and hurtful year for our family. You are doing remarkably well, too well? Maybe? Don’t do it alone. You are the strongest, independent, resilient, positive women I have ever known.
    Love you
