It feels the same…

After waking up 60 birthdays in a row….I should have known…nothing really changes.  I’ve thought it many times and said it many times that it’s just a number….but this one is really making me feel old….last night before I slipped off to sleep, I said to myself well goodbye 50s.

Quite a difference than my 59th birthday.  I woke up in Belize.  I had been sick for a couple of days.  Before the day was over I was in the emergency room in Lee’s Summit with a diagnosis of diverticulitis and oh…by the way you have kidney cancer. It’s been quite a year of hospitals, surgery, fear.  Yet I’ve experienced a lot of personal growth, faith, peace and love.

It’s going to be a good year…this 60th year….I have no idea what will happen this year…the good and the bad.  I will just celebrate the happy times and remember that “I can do this” during the bad times.  

Carpe Diem, my friends!
