Today is My Birthday

It takes a long time to grow young.
                  -Pablo Picasso

Today is my birthday. It is bittersweet to say the least. Many of the people that were on this earth, the day I was born are no longer here. My grandparents, parents, favorite aunt and uncle etc. But, I do believe you have to celebrate life, and enjoy the people that are in your life!

As a child, I learned to celebrate my birthday. We celebrated with a party with ice cream and cake; and sometimes an occasional trip to an amusement park or beach.  I really didn't like amusement  rides back then, and don't like rides now. So now I treat my self to the beach and a nice massage.

Like many of my birthdays in the past 50 years, I will spend it on the beach, enjoying a nice meal, and then a small party with loved ones!
