Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium: Smile

Well, I have mixed emotions about smiling today. Today is my 50th birthday. While I should smile because I made it 50 years, I can't help thinking of the phrase, "Half a century". I guess it's a matter of looking at the glass half full as opposed to looking at it half empty. So although 50 may be hard to swallow, I'll still leave you with a smile because I'm happy I made it this far!

Now go and see what the other Consortium members have to say about this issue!

Rummuser, Anu, Ashkok, Gaelikka, Grannymar, Conrad, Padmum, Magpie11, and Akanksha,Will Knot, Maria the Silver Fox, Anki, Nema Noor Paul Plain Joe, and Rohit

Well, Happy Birthday to you!!! I definitely consider 50 to still be quite young :)

Grannymar said...

Congratulations and Best wishes for a wonderful Birthday!

I think you have plenty to celebrate on this your 50th Birthday. You are alive, you have a happy and healthy family and best of all you got mixed up with us LBCers! ;)

If 60 is the new forty... then being 50 really makes you 35!!

That is a great milestone - half a century. It sits well on you. Happy birthday and my best wishes for many many more.

I have 25 years on you so please listen when I say, the age of fifty is just a number. There are so many adventures ahead of you. Enjoy each day and especially this very Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday and remember that you are always my younger sister. :0) I will confess to struggling with each new decade birthday, though. And black roses and jokes are not funny when you change decades. :0)

Happy birthday, you're just two years older than I am so I'm not far away from my 50th. Sure, we're only in our prime!

Happy Birthday! Any birthday celebrated is a great day. My 50's have been the best time of my life. I remarried and am blissfully happy with my new hubby. I started a new career which I love, and we moved out west, which has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. Not all my friends have made it to 50, I'm sad to say, so rejoice in making it this far!

Belated happy birthday.
Just think of it as an excellent score in cricket.

I like Padmum's "Fifty is for freedom" :0)

Happy Belated Birthday! I had not idea you were turning 50 this year! If someone told me, I forgot.

Did you have any "50th Birthday" pranks pulled on you?
