52 years old and still counting!

Someone asked me today if I am worried about being 52 years old? I just smiled and said  "I am just glad to still be here, the numbers aren't important to me, except that I get to keep adding one more each year. Yes, I was grateful to have another birthday to celebrate with my family. I am grateful that so many of my friends called and sent me birthday wishes. Yes, I have a lot to celebrate on my 52nd birthday today!  I have the opportunity to have another year with my family and friends and I am healthy. I am in less pain than I have been in years, plus I am able to be teaching and working at the Quilt Shop some. So even though I didn't get to  have all of my family around me for my special day (which is the only other wish I had ), Amy and Lee made sure that they had it covered and they did a wonderful job!

Just take a look at these faces...don't they look like they have everything in control?

It was a great day, thanks so much for all your love and wishes, it was a great day!
