Yep... Today 47 years ago a fat little rollie pollie was born "Me" I really ever cared too much about my birthdays. Yes there was a few I liked. The ones when I was a little kid and got lots of toys. Then the one at 16 when I got my driver license. Then the one at 18 was kind of cool when I didn’t HAVE to listed to my mom and dad (I listen now). Then the time I turned 21 and woke up in Mexico having no idea how I got there. But this birthday seems to be the best one of all. I'm alive!!!

Happy Birthday there buddy. Hope you had a good day. Mine's next month, 47 also. Seems like a popular age range for our group (under 50). Funny, I've always enjoyed birthdays. Looking back I guess I was always happy I made it another year. Even more so now. Here's to life, the best present we can get these days. Hoping you enjoy many more.

I totally agree. I used to complain about getting old, never again. I used to view the elderly with pity, never again. I now realize the 70, 80, 90, even 100 year olds are the lucky ones. I hope I live to see 50. Amazing what a little cancer dx will do to ya.

Hope you are having an outstanding day! Birthdays are awesome! I never hated birthdays, figured getting older beat the alternative, but since the diagnosis, that philosophy took on much more meaning! I feel blessed to see another day, and when 365 of them string together for another birthday celebration, I am truly blessed! Rock on!

They never did bother me, I would always celebrate them for days on end. But now they are just so much sweeter, my very own personal FCK YOU to cancer. I am happy to be the age I am, I earned it and so did you.

Happy birthday, Brooks! It's amazing how our perspective on such things as birthdays have changed now post cancer, huh? I know what you mean.

Enjoy the day and may you have a blessed year!

Hope you and the fam are enjoying the new homefront. My brother-in-law grew up in Klamuth Falls and went to OSU. In-laws live in Seattle. Guess we'll have to have beers at the Mariners now instead of the Pads when I hit the west coast.
