Monday Motivation VI


Another birthday has come and gone, and I'm a year older.  Which makes me grateful, because I'm still here!  Last year I wrote about my friend Gretchen, and what she taught me about birthdays.  I thought of her yesterday, and was reminded once again why we celebrate.


Have a wonderful week!

Linking up with Turn It Up Tuesday

    1. I know, right? I used to feel bad for my husband having to do it all at once, but I think he gets off pretty easy!

  7. Happy Birthday! I can totally relate. My mom and both of my brothers died early... 59, 47 and 52. I'm 53 now, and am thankful for each and every birthday that I have. Bring on the gray hair and wrinkles!!! Well, I won't go that far...lol ;-)
