Attention It's my birthday

Attention It is my 47 th birthday today. It feels good because I am feeling more confident and stronger than ever. It also feels sad because less time is left and I don't have the energy and changes of a young person anymore. Life gets in the way of dreams. But I feel that this year is going to be special in many ways. My brother is coming this summer, I am going to Holland in April and I think much more is going to happen although I don't know yet what it is. Anyway althoug I am not a fan of birthdays I will still have a good day with a walk, a wine and a nice dinner with my family, phonecalls with my brothers, my mum, my friends, pressies and cards. Wish you all a happy day too, Love Marja

  4. A very happy birthday to you Marja! I'm probably a bit late now though with the time difference.
    You have caught up to me. We are 47, or as my father always said, in our "48th year", because you must count the year between birth and your 1st birthday. Grim.

    I don't feel too bad most of the time, but there are definitely days when I feel 47.

    Hope it was delightful!

  9. Kia Ora Marja,
    Happy Birthday! I hope this day is filled with nothing but joy and sweetness. And I know what it is like to return home after a long absence. It is the blessing and curse of those like you and I who live far away from our original places. Your heart will fly! Kia kaha Marja. Have a simply lovely day.
    Rangimarie,

  18. Oh dear Marja, please forgive me. I missed your birthday post. Not too late to say I wish for you many more happy birthdays with good health and lots of friends around you. I have just created a blog list to help me keep up-to-date with my reading. Hopefully this will address the anomaly. In the meantime I have lots of back post on your blog to read which I intend to do. Thanks for understanding.

    Cheers
