Well It’s Ma Birthday

Another birth anniversary is upon me. I don’t know where the time went. Just yesterday I was a child and now–age keeps nipping at my heels.

The gray hairs are rapidly increasing and the joys/pain of small lines are becoming ever more visible.


On a serious note, I am rejoicing in another birthday that God has kept me here alive to see and participate in.

I am grateful for the chance to grow old. I continue to learn and grow and reach forward continuously.

My life is richer, fuller than I could ever have imagined. I am loved and blessed and I am forever grateful for the love of Christ.

Today I am off work, I will check out some of your posts on WP, relax around the house, have some indoor time with the fam and tomorrow we resume work on the battlefield.

Please know that I appreciate all of you and I am always appreciative and grateful for your prayers and sweet thoughts.

Do continue to remain safe out there.

All the best and lots of love from me.

  1. Happy Birthday, Pené! 😊 Enjoy!

    1. I thank you my friend. How are you keeping?

      1. Was fine till Saturday night when I fell. I now have rib pain, but it’s not broken, per x-ray and doctor at the ER.

        1. Oh my. Take it easy, you may have a contusion which is pretty painful.

          1. Thank you, dear Pené. It’s definitely been very painful. Is it possible for the contusion to be interior and therefore not visible on the skin?

            1. Yes it could. Perhaps the skin was not impacted enough to bruise depending on the way you fell.
              I do hope you are starting to feel better.

  2. Pene, I hope your birthday is joyous! <3 <3 <3

  15. Happy Birthday, Pene! I celebrated mine yesterday. I agree- it’s a blessing to grow older. Best wishes for the coming year!✨

    1. Happy belated birthday my friend! Hope you had a blast.

      1. Thanks 😊 We’re in lockdown again and Ebro is closed. We managed a walk though. I was happy just to relax and spend time with my family. I hope you’re being spoiled on your special day!

        1. Yes I am, it is a good day.
          I limit outside visitis as much as possible. MY 8 yr old has not had much outside interaction since this started. My 16 yr old went back to school this semester as she was starting to become depressed.
          It is difficult for us and so much harder on the kids.

          1. I hear you! My teenagers are finding it so hard now. Schools reopened in September but we’ve returned to remote learning. Over Christmas cases got out of control here. I hope your daughter is happier now.

        2. In addition, it seems the world is so much more unkind in a time when we all need more empathy or perhaps we are all so frightened it is bringing out our baser instincts.

    2. Thank you for my birthday wishes.

  16. Happy Birthday!

    1. Thank you my friend! Best wishes today.
