How does that make me feel?
When I glanced in my mirror this morning, “lucky” was the word that filled my heart.
I am lucky I get to be 63.
I am lucky that I have graduated from perimenopause to menopause to post-menopause.
I am lucky that I feel healthy and strong!
I am lucky that I watched my children grow up to become compassionate and loving people.
I am lucky to share 39 years of marriage with David.
I am lucky that my family is growing. I have a wonderful son-in-law and a delicious 2-year-old granddaughter. My favorite words are “Gama EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE”.
I am lucky I found my encore career as a women’s health advocate, author, blogger, and speaker. Helping to empower all of the wonderful women with whom I have connected, has been a joy and immensely rewarding.
I am lucky that I am surrounded by wonderful family and friends who have sent me beautiful birthday cards. I have them on my kitchen counter to remind me of their sweet love and support (not sure how to display the eCards??). There is one missing card that was always signed, “To my very special Dear Daughter from your loving Mom.” Luckily, I have a whole folder of them saved that I can pull out and enjoy.
A very special friend and mentor of mine taught me to try to make every day my birthday because that will remind me to celebrate every day!
Let’s all celebrate today and every day.
Happy Birthday to lucky me and YOU!
