44

As we get older, we are supposed to get wiser... blah!  As I make this turn to 44 I have to reflect back on a very tough year 43.  I quit my job.  Started my own business.  Had a seizure.  Had a huge panic attack. Got the flu. And several other setbacks  between August and February.  Financially, I have struggled, but after all clear from doctors on head and heart issues, I am coming back.  The last couple of months have been better.  Just wish is would have been sooner than now.  I am fortunate to have great family and friend support through all of this up and down shit.  So, I am hoping that 44 will be the year that things really happen.  I thank you all for your support of me over the years, from gifts to donations to Fan Free Clinic to just being there to listen.  I am more focused now and have been for last couple of months and hope to keep down that trail.  I could not do it without your love and support.  Especially from my husband Jeff.  We are stressed to the max with all that is going on, but our friends and family have been there around us for support.  That is what life is about and I am so very grateful for the people in our lives who have been there and continue to be there for us.  Thank you.  That is the best birthday present anyone could ask for.  Cheers to another year and hope it is better than worse.

Happy Birthday!
Yes I was away with the fairies on the short hair comment. But alas it is my goal to see how often I can use away with the fairies in a sentence today.

Very many happy returns for today, you youngster, you. (I trust the 'face fur' is starting to re-sprout now.)
