Celebrate Life!

I used to think I do not wish to make a big deal of my birthday but this year, I began to think otherwise. Tomorrow I am going to be older.  As one gets older, one begins to ponder on one's mortality. I mean, like I told a friend of mine, we are nearer to that side than this, over the hill lar. In every sense of the word, it seems like downhill all the way. You know how things seem to go faster downhill. Skin sag faster, bones ache more, body gets tired faster, one needs more rest, the term 'out-of-breath' is more frequently used.

I have begun to think that I am blessed to be older. Many people did not even get to live to my age. I have much to thank God for. I am alive, I am well ( despite slight hiccups like diabetes, bad back etc ) , I have a lovely family (that includes Wookie), I live a full life (at 3am, I still have things to do)

So this year I want to Celebrate LIFE!  Being a chemist.

When I was young, I remember always complaining that 'life is boring'... it really was an uphill climb.

Therefore, now that I have crested the hill, I find the downhill ride to be a definite improvement!

Wheee, what a rush!

Happy Birthday, dear friend. May you continue to revel in this celebratory spirit (and still have things to do at 3am) until your 99th birthday. :)

Ju: Wow! Can't wait to get to your age then I guess...

Katy: Yoda was 500+ before he kong, and was still jumping around dueling sabers and lifting x-wings out of the waters then. I'm sure Metro's Yoda can be just like that ahaha. Happy birthday to you, wise woman. God bless you with more life blessings packaged in nice gargantuan overflowin boxes.

Thanks everybody. I shall, ahem, try to live up to all your expectations like living till 99 and only 'kong' when I am near 500+. Thanks for all the love, hugs and kisses.
