Default Not birthdays!

Yearly, on that special day, I celebrate the anniversary of my 21st birthday!

When I turned 30, I started counting back down to 21, then started back up to 30 again. Kept at it until mid 40s and then couldn't figure it out in my head anymore! I confused the heck out of my daughters. We laugh about it now that they're in their 50s.

Now, at 73, age doesn't bother me at all. For some reason I still haven't figured out, 30 really bothered me.

Growing old is a privilege. My mom only made it to 56, so every year I'm here, I celebrate!

My dad told me when I hit 40 that I could start backward and enjoy my 30's on down (you know the family rasing age)
Now I have started over and am only 4. Learning all kind of things in this "new age."

I totally agree. Recently divorced and starting all over again I didn't think I'd ever meet anyone that was interested unless they were alot older. Then a recently divorced coworker showed interest and when he first told me I was sexy I really thought he was only trying for one thing. I didn't see my self that way. Well, after 6 mos we are still trying to see where it all goes, very slowly and now I'm starting to believe him more. Most people don't ever guess I'm 61, most think I'm in my 40's so why should I feel 61, which I don't. It's nice to have someone who is in their 40's to be interested in me and think that I look his age. I'm at the stage now that I'd rather be getting older than the alternative. I have too many grandkids, great grandkids to enjoy growing up. Plus, I finally can start enjoying life instead of raising kids and worrying about everyone else. It's me time.

gramajo - I totally agree with you. Hitting 30 bothered me but at 71 am glad to have been blessed with another year. My Mom passed away at 65 so each year now to me is a blessing.
