All this talk of birthdays has me thinking of significant ages. I’m older than Ella so I have more birthdays to look back on. I dreaded 40 and that was the year I discovered the true purpose of the Internet. I met my husband online less than a year after that…and developed a Canasta addiction that gave me many hours of pleasure and new friends I still hang out with. I met DeeDee my original Canasta partner just this year at a writer’s conference in Cincinnati.
Which leads me to the next significant age…50. Yep, done that one, too. With 40 being such a winner (not whiner! I stopped whining right after the birthday) I was actually excited to see what 50 would bring and it was the year I got published for the very first time. Grandma Moses, I know, but I was still young enough to hop up with my cane and click my granny shoes together. But…it makes me think. Sixty is pretty far off still, but I’m not afraid of it. I am ready to see what it brings.
So, Miss Ella Jade, Happy Birthday, a significant one and one I hope will be the best you’ve had, so far!
Share a happy birthday memory and I’ll randomly select one winner for a copy of It’s Just Love. Good luck with all the many stops and prize drawings…and be sure to with Ella a happy birthday. After all, she’s the founder of the feast.
