Happy Birthday Baby!

Today my one and only daughter turns 27. How can that be? I don't feel much older than 27 myself...until I look in a mirror, that is.

Without consulting me at all, time continues to zoom forward at warp speed. Sometimes I think it would be a blessing to slow down the years. But how could I choose when to apply the brakes? In every year it seems like some wonderful thing or another has happened. I'm optimistically hoping that the future brings more of the same.

Perhaps it's smarter to ignore my image in the mirror. Who needs to consider what that old lady thinks, anyway? It's much more fun to listen to the teenager hidden under the wrinkly facade, who resides deep in my soul. That girl is up for a party anytime.

Happy 27th birthday to my pretty baby!

Oh Pat, I feel exactly the same way. I sometimes look in the mirror and think 'who the heck are you?'
But at least as the years pass you have more peace of mind, confidence, patience and seem to appreciate life more, so what do you do?
Happy Birthday to your daughter, she is so pretty!

This guy feels the same way when he looks in the mirror. That's why I don't look.

Give "Jackie Joyner-Kersee" (sorry fellow followers, it's an inside joke) a happy birthday hug and kiss from us.

Happy birthday, Pat's beautiful baby girl!

She looks great! You've certainly taken great care of her. Hugs ^^

Time certainly flies... and they grow so fast... in this case, I grow so fast as my mom still babies me even though I'm on my late 20s.

Huggies and Cheese,

Hope your daughter had a fine birthday! I know what you mean. It can be scary to look in the mirror and see a strange face, but I believe we can remain youthful throughout our lives. Keep that teenager inside of you going strong!!
