Today is a beautiful day outside - sunny and warm! A beautiful day to celebrate another year! Yes, it is my birthday! And to be honest, it is a birthday that I wasn't sure I would ever see! My doctors have never been overly pessimistic but at the same time, the longer my illness drags on, let's just say they are not overly encouraging about living to be 100!

That is why I am so grateful for every day that God has given me! He has blessed me in so many ways, and one of the greatest ways He has blessed me is getting old!!! Of course, I don't think I am old but my body has a tendency to disagree with me! But when I woke up this morning and saw how beautiful it was, I was so truly grateful! I have had such a beautiful day - lunch with my daughter, opening the presents she gave me, crying my eyes out when I read her card and the words she wrote, calls from friends, and looking forward to a dinner tonight hand cooked by my precious daughter. I can't promise that I will never complain again about getting old, but I do promise that I will be more and more grateful for the wonderful life He has given me!

Even though I know that one day I will spend eternity with the Lord and that when that day comes, I will have no more pain or suffering and I know that I don't fear that day, I do admit that I am not quite ready for it yet! There is so much I still want to accomplish here on this earth. But when God decides it is my time, I will truly rejoice!

Thank you, Lord, for another day and another year! Thank you for the knowledge that as I grow older and my body ages that there will come a time that I will be with You forever without any pain or sorrow, only joy and happiness!

Children's children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17:6
