Happy Birthday to Me!

by Marsha Ward

Sorry I don't have anything spectacular to report like Tami did. Wait, wait, except that I did get a great review of my manuscript from a critiquer yesterday. Thanks, Dan! He is awesome!

It's that time of the year again. Time to stress over taxes, that is. Oh, and BTW, celebrate reaching that ripe upper middle age of 62.

I very much appreciate getting to this age. The alternative is not somewhere I want to go just yet. Maybe that's why when my husband died prematurely almost ten years ago, and people would pat my hand and say, "You'll be with him soon," I would recoil in horror! Not me! Not yet!

I intend to live to a very old age. I have so many stories to tell, so much service to give, so many family issues to see resolved (mumble, mumble).

You tell me. By looking at my picture, would you guess that I'm in my sixties? Early sixties, to be sure, but I don't see a tremendous lot of wrinkles or gray hair. Do you? (That's my natural color, BTW.)

No, I didn't think so. My Birthday Wish is to continue celebrating many birthdays down the years.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARSHA! I think you look absolutely radiant, m'dear! I hope your day was special because you certainly are!!!

Happy birthday! I think you're only as old as you want to be. I don't want to be very old, ever, although my children probably wish I did sometimes.

Happy Birthday, Marsha!

Thanks, ladies! It's been a pretty nice day. Several people have called me today and this week (including most of my kids), and sent ecards and good wishes on my email groups.

Family, good friends, and good wishes. What more could I desire?

Happy (late) birthday, Marsha. I hope it was wonderful, and NO, you do not look your age :)

Happy, happy birthday! (a tad late)

You look fab! I haven't seen my natural hair color in years. If only I were so lucky!
