God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday Sweet 61

Just doesn't have the same ring to it as             Happy Birthday Sweet 16, does it?  Of course I'm not 16 in the above photo.  The card on the sideboard indicates that this is my second birthday.  Oh, to be young again ... but to know everything I know now   : )

I received some nice gifts which I will try to post tomorrow.  If the truth be told, I haven't even opened them yet, but I'm sure they're nice   : )   John & I left early this morning to spend the day in Lexington.  We shopped here & there & then had a yummy birthday lunch at Red Lobster.  We arrived home a little while ago. It's 3:45 now & I'm exhausted.  Like I said above ... oh, to be young again!

Happy Birthday!
Glad you had a fun "shopping & eating" day--those are the best!
You can enjoy relaxing and recovering now--that's one of the GOOD things about getting a year older! You can do what you want and take as long as you need!!

Wishing you a very blessed birthday. Remember, you are only as young as you feel, unfortunately, I feel every one of my 58 years most days. Oh well, a good thought anyway!

Dearest Shirlee,
Happy, Happy Birthday!!!! Wishing you a year filled with happiness, love, and peace.
I love that black and white picture of you...oh, the memories. I think the "trick" is to enjoy every moment of being 61, while feeling like you are 16!!!
It might sound strange, but I enjoy being 67 and wear my gray hairs proudly...LOL
Busy Hands...Happy Heart
