some likes to remain a certain age. LOL.
FOR Me,proud that I can wear my red hat and stand proud to be a red hatter. Yes those under 50 can wear pink and wait till they turn 50. I can remember asking my husband since he was 15 yrs older than myself, how it felt. He didn't have a problem with his age either. Until his health started to get bad, and that what he requet along with not able to do things he wanted to do.
Age is a number, and we all grow older with each day.

another way I look at it with each passing year, it one day closer to when the LORD may take me to be with HIM. Not that I'm ready not really, as there things I still would like to do, and go.

Enjoy life as much as you can for it is short, and time goes by way to fast.

My Birthday's never bothered me either. I was just commiserating on my next one last night. I'll be 62 and you know I sure don't feel like it. Still feel like I did when I was 40.

I have outlived my Mother's age and I thought that was old. How did I get this old! LOL

can't say I've ever dreaded a birthday, except that maybe I'd like someone else to think about it and plan a little something for it.. not me planning my own bd dinner.. LOL

My sister had a mild heart attack and stent early on, she is well now into her sixties. I don't dread a bday except 75 seems like a big mile marker to me, that's just 15 years away, so I want to get working on my bucket list!

I'm young at heart, so birthdays don't effect me all that much, but I'm dreading my 100th Birthday bash. I just don't know where I'll find the energy to entertain. LOL!

Getting ready for my 78th birthday this year. Trying to do everything to stay healthier. All my cousins my age either have dementia or other health problems. My Mom lived to 95 with me never worried about age. Try to keep her outlook. Taking care of my Dh & Ds each day is a full job. Hopefully my Dh continues to feel alright. Glad I still can do it. Think using my Ninja to make smoothies gives me the energy to get going. So happy I live in Florida!
