MILESTONES

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE MILESTONE BIRTHDAYS! 

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE BIRTHDAYS THAT UNCLE SAM SENDS YOU A
GIFT IN THE MAIL AND TELLS YOU SIX MONTHS AHEAD OF TIME THAT THIS MILESTONE
BIRTHDAY IS COMING! HE DOES THAT BECAUSE IT TAKES 6 MONTHS TO LEARN THE NEW MEDICARE,SUPPLEMENTAL INSURANCE VOCABULARY!

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE BIRTHDAYS THAT YOU CAN NOT BELIEVE  IS ON YOUR DOORSTEP! KNOCKING AT THE DOOR-TRYING TO GET IN AND CAUSE HAVOC WITH MIND, BODY  AND SOUL!
IT WAS THE KIND OF BIRTHDAY THAT YOUR MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER REACHED
AND YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE  REALLY OLD! I MEAN-REALLY, REALLY OLD1

 IT WAS THE KIND OF BIRTHDAY THAT SAYS THE MIND IS YOUNG AND WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR YOU KNOW YOUR BODY HAS BETRAYED YOU!
[THAT IS- IF YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR NAKED IN THE FIRST PLACE!] CURRENTLY THAT IS NOT ONE OF MY STRENGTHS. YIKES-THERE REALLY IS  A LOT OF MILEAGE ON THAT BODY! WHO IS THAT LOOKING BACK AT ME IN THE MIRROR. IT IS CERTAINLY NOT WHAT I SEE IN MY MIND'S EYE!

IT WAS THE KIND OF BIRTHDAY, DESPITE OUR CAN NOT BELIEVE IT MENTATLITY-  THAT WE WERE HAPPY TO CELEBRATE IT!

 SO WHAT IS A GIRL TO DO SHE ASKS:
  1. FIRST OF ALL, TELL EVERYONE IT IS DONNA'S BIRTHDAY-NOT MINE!
  2. DECLARE A THREE DAY, NATIONAL HOLIDAY WITH ONLY FUN AND BUBBLES TO CELEBRATE THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION.
  3. LAUGH AND LIVE IN THE MOMENT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOW  65 AND YOU CAN DO ALL THE THINGS YOU SAID YOU WOULD NOT DO WHEN YOUR MOM TURNED 65. [I HAVE BEEN COMPILING A LIST OF WHAT NOT TO DO.]
  4. YOU CAN THROW THE DAMN LIST AWAY AND DO WHAT YOU PLEASE-BECAUSE YOU ARE SIXTY FIVE AND YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING!
OR

YOU CAN SURROUND YOURSELF WITH  LITTLE ONES-FOR NO MATTER WHAT COMES -THEY WILL KEEP YOU YOUNG IN HEART AND SPIRIT!
THE BODY-NOT SO MUCH!
ENJOY
DIANA, DONNA AND DEBBY
