Joanie, I forgot that we share the same birthday! I will be 52 on Sunday. It certainly feels different this year. I guess that I will never take birthdays for granted again. We are blessed to be able to celebrate this year. Enjoy your day.

To be honest with ya' when I was younger nobody ever thought I'd make it to 30. I wasn't sick or anything, just a wild child. Could ride a wheelie on a motorcycle for over 1/2 a mile. Some of the other stuff scares me to remember.Now 62 and the minds willing,but the body couldn't take it. LOL

Dear Joanie,

I am glad I signed on this morning, Saturday. I will be absent from this site until Tuesday.

Each day that I feel good is a blessing. Ditto, when I celebrate a birthdday or something special.

Healthy, happy and wonderful wishes for your 64th. Love Maggie

Your post brought up the memory of my 40th birthday, a bit ago, cough cough. lol. I remember thinking the same thing 'glad to be 40' and then that was followed by the realization that other women and men were mourning turning 40 but I was just glad to be any age after battling cancer and harsh treatments. How different dealing with your own mortality as we do can make us feel about aging eh?

Sometimes even now I think back to that time women go through at 40 when they feel it is all over and it's strange but I wonder if I sort of missed that stage in my life - albeit not a real celebratory one - but still a more normal passage because at that time survival was on my mind - not going into a new decade as a crisis - just surviving as a crisis.

There are other times like that that I feel I missed that other women deal with as milestones like premature menopause for me that was brought on by treatments when I was only 41. I mean to me it was a bonus to get rid of 'all that montly stuff' but I wasn't like everyone else who didn't deal with all of that til much later.

I guess I am talking about, in both instances, feeling different than other women due to these two situations that sometimes cancer brings to our table of life. Just a reflection on a rainy cool spring day here in Canada.

Blessings,

Bluerose

Happy 64th bday, Joanie! When you're celebrating that tomorrow, husband Sy and I will be celebrating our 25th anniversary on that very day! We'd hoped to plan a trip to British Columbia for that special occasion, but it will have to be postponed til later when better health allows travel.

I do hope you have a wonderful day with your family and many, many more birthdays to come! Much love to you - Fran

I can identify with you, when you are young you can not wait to get older and now that I am 65 I wonder were the time went too.
Now I am just counting my Blessings that I am still here. The last two years I would not want to repeat for anything in the world.
While I was going through Chemo my poor mom got colon cancer. And she was 88 and the dr said she would never make it with chemo. So Mom died last March.
This was horrendously horrible time.
But still counting my blessings, and miss my mother daily.
Hope you are doing well,
Hilde
