CELEBRATE !


I am celebrating my birthday and I invite you to celebrate with me by living each day to the fullest.

Give hugs and kisses to loved ones.
Call an old friend and reconnect.
Turn up the music and sing ~ loudly, then start dancing, wildly.
Be mindful of the moment.
Take a risk ~ try something new, push yourself.
Perform a random act of kindness.
Be kind to yourself. Smile.
Be happy. Be silly. Laugh freely.
Eat dessert first ~ once in a while.

And please remember that the best gift you can give any person is the gift of your time. Spend time NOW with family and friends - don't wait because you never know...


Repeat the above on a daily basis -it will help you have a happier birthday and a more fulfilling life. Celebrate !

I also invite you to watch the following little video. It put a smile on my face - probably because I could relate so well. If you are a 'youngster', this video hints at what you have to look forward to ~ Enjoy.

Happy Birthday! I like the "eat only dessert" philosophy - can't wait to have a banana split soon! :)

Green Bean ~ Thank you for your kind wishes. I received a plaque from a friend which read 'Once upon a time...there was time.'

Melissa ~ The banana splits were wonderful and we will make more when you arrive home. I can't wait to go to the movies with YOU! xxoo
