I don't feel older. I don't feel 50- especially since the server at lunch the other day guessed my age at early 30s. Okay, she was only 23 but still.
My birthday party went well. To the people who came to celebrate, I thank you.
I appreciate it.
I am not really much of a party person - but I really wanted to celebrate my 50th. I never had a big 1st wedding (which in hind-site is good), no baby shower that someone threw for me. So just once, I wanted a 'me' party. So I was planning it, along with my daughter and hubby, for a while.
It was fun! The people who came were great!
It was nice catching up with those I hadn't seen in a while.
But there were a lot of people who didn't come who should have been there. A lot of people who never RSVP'd at all, or who said they were coming and did not. This is disappointing beyond measure.
I am not doing a 'poor me' cry by any means
life is short.
Spend it with the ones you care about.
I have seen people drive 3 hours to spend 10 minutes at a funeral.
I really want people to make the effort while I am alive.

FROM MY DAUGHTER - So I'd just like to wish this lovely lady right here the happiest of birthdays!!!🎉 The big 5️⃣0️⃣!!! You've been there by my side through everything, even when no one else was. I don't know what I'd do without you in this world. I'm glad that you're my mom but the fact that you don't look anything like your age is nice because people still mistake us for sisters 👯 Even though I'm repulsive in public with my burping & I complain about everything, thank you for always being there for the laughs 😂 that have no reason & the cries that do. I notice our similarities more & more each day & I wouldn't want it any other way. Happy 50th Birthday Mother dear!
