Birthday Time

When I was young, I wanted to be twenty-one. When twenty-one came, I was thrilled and it made my day. So thrilled, each year I stayed twenty-one. When I turned fifty, my husband gave me a surprise party. I then decide to turn twenty-two, each year I stayed twenty-two. When I turned sixty, at the party I turned twenty-three. Birthday time is what you make of it, young or old where will you stay in time. After all it is just a day, your very special day for one year.

Thank You, for your note and your congratulations. Glad you like it. Age is all in your mind. Many are old long before their time. Many stay young into old age. Have a wonderful day.................

Thank You, for writing. I only wanted to be twenty-one. I never cared about another birthday. Guess that is what keeps me young. Have a wonderful day.........
