Happy Birthday to Me

Posted: January 2, 2012 in personal essay

There’s no birthday greeting like the one you send yourself, evidently. This is a picture of me at only several months of age so it’s as close to the original event as any of us want to get. I feel like celebrating marking my 56th birthday, even though I had to actually do the math to remember how old I was, probably a foreshadowing of things to come. haha. The observant among you will notice that my right hand is already curled up and ready for that big crayon and paint brush that will feature so prominently in my future. Today my friend is treating me to an elaborate breakfast buffet and a visit to her abode afterward. No telling what favors and surprises await later on. Hope each of you has a great day of celebration, birthday or not, and a Happy New Year.

  1. Have a very happy birthday! Hope it’s full of fun and suprises!
