Well I have been 60 for a week now and I really don’t feel that much different.  I still think lots, laugh and still anticipate living for another 60 years.  I had an amazing birthday weekend as Jerry, Kristy and Alyson surprised me with Matt, my sister Joanne, her husband Dwight and daughter Tenaya, and my sister Doris and her husband Lorne, by having a surprise birthday lunch for me last Friday at Alexanders.  I had told Jerry “no party” if he wanted to continue living, but I was totally surprised and thoroughly thrilled to have my family here for the weekend.  We had a great time just hanging out, laughing, eating, celebrating with cake and friends as well on Saturday, and just being together.  I am anticipating some great days ahead.  It feels good to be where I am in life, and as I told my friend Alyson this morning, I am in a good place in life and so thankful that I can look ahead with great anticipation to further learning, growing and change.  I don’t know what the future holds, but I will attempt to live each day to its fullest…even if it is just reading a good book with a great cup of coffee!  It is the simple pleasures in life that make it so good!
