It’s her BIRTHDAY!!!

Yes, it’s my first baby’s birthday. My very own angel daughter. She seems a little concerned about the numbers (she’s turning 29…for the second time 😉 ) So…right below my favorite baby pic of us, is some advice I borrowed from a friend’s blog.



(With thanks to George Carlin)

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That is why you pay him/her.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ” An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

  1. Happy Birthday to HER!! What a great pic of you both.

    My youngest turned 46 last week. He sure is getting old… 😉

  2. Ahhhhh! What an adorable picture M*A! My oldest daughter will be 18 on the 22nd! May seems to be a good month! (My husband’s birthday is just 6 days away!)
