Why is it that as you get older, birthdays seem to be like any other day.  Kids just can't wait for theirs and continually ask 'how many weeks'? 'how many sleeps' - but for me anyway, birthdays now are just like any other day.

Well you might have guessed already - it was mine today and honestly I don't feel a day older!  Maybe next year when its one with a big fat ZERO on the end of it I may feel differently.

Today was quite unspectacular (is there such a word) - but good none the less.  It was good to just be alive, to have experienced one more day in the Lord's time.  Nice cards, phone messages and heaps of facebook birthday greetings made it just that bit more of a 'birthday' feel.

Well, tomorrow is another day and for now, I'm off to bed!

I realise this is a little late but at this time of life how lovely to be able to receive belated birthday greetings.... as you say just another day in paradise...I hope you have many many more of them.
God Bless

Happy Birthday, Bee Jay! I love birthdays -- not necessarily keeping track of the years, but just the feeling that I have a special day, like my own personal New Year or day for reflecting on where I've been and where I want to go from here. And it's always lovely to be remembered by friends and family.

I'm glad you had a nice day!
