Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday.  This is my own personal day.  Of course, I actually share the same day with many others.  My first husband was born on July 16.  In fact, sometimes I think that may be the first thing that attracted both of us to each other.

One very good friend was born today, Betsy.  And, two of my previous co-workers are also July 16 babies.

My dad was born July 15th.  He is now deceased.  Two of my cousins were born in July, one on July 4th (she is a year older with Alzheimer’s) and Karen was born on July 10th.  My son-in-law was born July 19th.  My future daughter-in-law was born July 18th.

This is a big month in my family.

October must be a romantic and fertile month for many couples.  It only seems natural.

I appreciate every day and curse only the bad times.  I know that I am quite lucky to have had so many amazing experiences, the happy ones and the ones that brought me to my knees.

Now, I am celebrating my day 🙂
