Assignment 9: Celebrate Age - #love2011

The theme for this week's Love Project is going to be about Celebrating Age.

Assignment: Write a blog post or comment about your age and why it is the perfect age to be. Variations might be what you think the perfect age is and why. You can also talk about your birthday, why it's special, and how you are going to celebrate. Or if you really just want a very easy Love Project Assignment, then help me celebrate MY age by leaving me a Happy Birthday comment! Today I'm 51!

I only have 5 minutes so this will have to be short and sweet. Yes, today is my birthday, and I'd been kind of moping about it all week. I do not like to be over 50 and single. But I woke up this morning to a virtual Facebook surprise party (at least that's how I like to think of it!) with lots of birthday greetings from Facebook friends. I also had emails and text messages, and realized how very many people I have in my life and I feel so grateful for that.

Then a friend (who didn't realize it was my birthday) called and asked if I wanted to get coffee. Now, perhaps in younger days I would have gone and not said anything about it being my birthday. But not today. I said yes and told him he was buying because today is all about ME! Woo Hoo!

I love how fully you embrace your birthday and yourself. This is a great example to people like myself. Happy Birthday! I'm so glad you were born.
