Well I made it through the day

I had a quiet day yesterday. Yes Valentines Day. I turned 60 years old and I had a quiet day with my husband. In fact he left for a couple hours with a friend and I was totally alone. This very seldom happens. I did do a little sewing while he was gone and some cleaning.
Last night we watch three TV shows and we sat and watched them and the day was a good day to reflect over the last 60 years.
I have worked all kinds of jobs. Been several places and met many people, but I like quiet time also. I got up early and my first phone call of the morning was my granddaughter calling to wish me Happy Birthday. She called before she went to school.
An old friend came and brought me two chocolate roses on a stick and another called and wished me happy birthday.
As a child I never thought about being this age. I have outlived my Father by 11 years and yet I feel like I am about 102 physically, mentally I am still 30. It is just a number Right???? Chris

Belated happy birthday!! I think turning an age with a 0 on the end made me feel older, and then when there is a 1 at the end the next year I got renewed energy and felt younger.
