Tired, old older eyes
So, today I blew out 43 candles.  Well...I would have blown them out had we had cake but my mom made banana pudding, which is normally a favorite of mine.  I have not been feeling too well lately and did not have much of an appetite tonight.  Actually, I got to spend this morning having some tests run at the hospital.  Mom and dad went with me.  While there, it hit me that forty-three years ago my mom, dad and I were together for the first time in this same hospital.  As nostalgic as that is, I would rather not have had to be there today.

I received lots of goodies for my birthday but, aside from spending time with my most favorite people tonight, my favorite gift was the little pig keychain and coin purse that John-Heath fished out of Ma-Ma and Pa Gene's junk drawer.  I will cherish it forever.

I am 44 and it is funny (not really) how the body starts to change and age already. I hope everything turns out to be okay.

Happy Belated Birthday, friend. At 30 I learned that older people's ache's and pains were real. At 40 I began eating a lot of crow. I hope yours turn out to be nothing a little rest won't heal. ~Angie
