Wow, I Don't Feel 39!


So yeah, today is my birthday. I am 39. I feel 29. I wish I were 19. Not because I'm afraid of getting older-far from it, but I wish I could do some things over. Like stayed in college and gotten my degree. Gotten married when I had the chance (But I'd be a widow now...). Not taken so many jobs just for the money. Discovered soap making sooner than later. Traveled more. BUT.....

Today is a new day! I'm so thankful for so many things. I'm alive. I'm healthy. I'm independent. I have all of my mental and physical faculties. I have friends. I have family. And I have YOU. I'm off for a few days of fun and sun. Talk to ya'll soon....

Happy blooming birthday!
I'm catching you up...I'm 37 (38 in Feb).
Not nice is it.
I look in the mirror and think where'd that wrinkle come from. I don't look like that!
Wonder how we'll feel at 70!
Have a great day

Happy Birthday! You are still young and can do all the things you didn't get around to doing when you were younger. :)

Happy birthday. You're not going to be feeling your age for quite a number of years, thank god. I for one am stuck at 16 (but a tad wiser :)

Happy Birthday! You never look like 39 - I promise. I have my 37th birthday next month and I don`t feel so old, too. In my heart and with my intuition and behaviour I am not older than 27 - sometimes propably not more than 15. *gg*
Hope you have a nice birthday.
Best greetings from germany and sorry for my bad english!

Thank you EVERYONE for the wonderful birthday wishes! I spent the evening with family and friends, and I ate til I was miserable. It was a great day in spite of the rain and humidity, but I wouldn't have had it any other way:D

Oh Patrice! Happy belated birthday! Sorry I missed it. Hope you had a wonderful, beautiful day sweetie! (I stopped at 36, so I just celebrated the 10th anniversary of that birthday! LOL)
