Fabulous Fifty!

Today is my 50th birthday. This is one of those days I always tease others about and it's hard to believe I would reach it myself. Every birthday to me is a blessing. I am blessed to be 50 years old and still in such a good health. In my life, I can say that I have been to both sides of the world. I have gone through times of adversity as well as times of success. I have faced trials and travails of life and I triumphed in most of them. I have known about being betrayed and being loved. I had moments of sadness and loneliness and times of joy and laughter. Through it all I have a lot of reasons to thank the Lord for. The fact that I am celebrating my 50th birthday is a miracle.

As I step into the threshold of another chapter in my life, I look at the past with gratitude. I have the present and even if it is not perfect I am so blessed to be where I am. I still have the future to look forward to. I may not have another 50 years left, but there is so much to be excited about it.

Today is a very special day for me. I will celebrate it with thanksgiving to God for the gift of life. I feel the love and care of family and friends as greetings, message of prayers and love are pouring from them from all corners of the world. I am fifty, I am healthy and I am loved!

Cheers and thank you very much to all of you who have touched my life in one way or another!

There is indeed so much to look forward to in the remaining years of our lives. May they lead you to write a sweet, sweet refrain to make us smile through the years.
