birthday splendor on the fifteenth
May you live all the days of your life.
- Jonathan Swift
i'm shameless about my birthday
i love it
"I mean, what is an un-birthday present?"
"A present given when it isn't your birthday, of course."
Alice considered a little. "I like birthday presents best," she said at last.
"You don't know what you're talking about!" cried Humpty Dumpty. "How many days are there in a year?"
"Three hundred and sixty-five," said Alice.
"And how many birthdays have you?"
- Lewis Carroll
sweetie and sis created my favorite dinner
flowers adorned the table
beautiful smiles abound
Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.
- Carl Sandburg
my sister and hers sing birthday greetings
hugs all day long from little one
A man is getting old when he walks around a puddle instead of through it. - R. C. Ferguson
alison sent a treasure
cupcakes made from hands i love
lovely fragrance that reminds me of my roses
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
- Reverend Larry Lorenzoni
music to remind me of my boy
and six months of who knows what we'll choose
beautiful little book to log new adventures
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The soul that rises with us, our life's star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar; Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.
- William Wordsworth
lavender scented and sweet pedestal plate
gorgeous and fun
Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. - Mark Twain
all that's left
gooey soft ready for toast
love on paper
"Lucky" bracelet from boys and wives
read and made plans before drifting off to sleep
these girls always come to my party
They tell you that you'll lose your mind when you grow older. What they don't tell you is that you won't miss it very much.
- Malcolm Cowley
the lucky birthday girl
since i thought i was 57 last year
i think i'll be 56 this year
hate to be 57 two years straight!
Please don't retouch my wrinkles. It took me so long to earn them.
