It's My Birthday!!


It's my birthday, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you!!

Thanks to Leslie Gore!! I woke up this morning with this song in my head..WHY!! Well I have no idea..just because it is my head!! Smile!! I have lived another 64 years here on this earth so guess it should be a good day!! I am not crying...not really..just another day and more numbers that just keep getting higher...Just a number!!

I have had a great week with lunch two days in a row for my birthday..Wednesday with my daughter to Panera Bread and yesterday with a good friend Madeline at Sweet Potatoes!! Good place to eat here in Savannah...

Yesterday was a good day. I went to MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) that I was invited to be on a panel of mentor moms..They called it the Wise Women Panel!! Wow!! I do believe I have arrived!! Smile!! No, really...it was fun!! We answered the questions that I had posted her on my last post and I think that God gave us the answers. I tried to prepare...some..but not really..Like Mike said you always "shoot from the hip" anyway...and that is exactly what I did....We had a great time with more questions asked and I feel good about my answers plus the other two mentor moms had wonderful responses. You know these are things that we all wish...(well I do) that I had done as a young mom...now I can look back and realize that would have been good. I mostly told them to SLOW down and enjoy their children...One day they would be all grown and you will regret running through this time in your life!!

Afterwards, my friend Madeline took me to Sweet Potatoes to eat and we had come wonderful conversation like we always do. Wish that she did not live so far from me...

I decided since I was right there I would stop and get my nails done so that they would look nice for my birthday!! Who cares but me...Oh well...I was sitting getting then done...They of course found out that my birthday is today..I went to wash my hands and they put me in the pedicure seat and gave me a FREE pedicure!! YES!! Well that really tickled me and gave me some good relaxation time....

I needed the relaxation because after that I went to pick up the kids...No...really they are good. We stayed at school so that they could play at the park there. I usually give them a half hour to run the day off...Madison wanted to come to the car before the time was finished so off we went back home...

It was a fun and happy day!! Wish that it could have been today so that i could have said what a fun birthday that I had!! BUT one good thing is that Mike is going to be home most of the day so that will be good...Our daughter and family will be leaving and going on a camping trip with some friends this weekend...

Hope your day is great today...I have about 5 friends that have a birthday today too...WE are all different ages of course but hopefully they will have a wonderful day!!

I just found your blog from BaBa's blog. I will come back. How did you generate the over 50's list? That is a great idea for all of us "over 50's" to connect with each other.I'll be back

I hope it is was a great one! I knew most of this from FB but I must comment again on how interesting I find the MOPS program. I'm filing this information in my head, as a possibility for a future ministry at our church preschool. Happy Birthday!

Betty said...

Happy Birthday dear Sandy, and I wish for you many more happy birthdays. Sounds like you have had a wonderful day in celebration of you.

I wish you a happy birthday and of course many more, Sandy. Sounds like you had a lovely day and congratulations on becoming a Mom mentor. I think, at our age, we do have some nuggets of wisdom to give young moms. I certainly wouldn't like to be bringing up children today.

Have a wonderful year, Sandy. Hugs.
