A lot of people say growing older can be daunting.
You have more responsibilities…
You need to plan ahead and coordinate.
You can’t be silly, especially in public places.
Oh, and you have to fall in love with the right guy.
But things are not so scary when you have got wonderful people with you.
Like your brothers who could finish the 20-inch pizza for you (and wanted to order another one).
And your sisters who always have rooms for desserts.
Friends who don’t care even if you fail to plan.
Girl friend who fell in love with the same married man.
Friends who remember you even from afar…
And of course friends who actually encourage you to be silly all the time.
So thank you everyone for making me feel so loved every year. Your time, thoughts, cards, texts, phone calls and Facebook messages mean the world to me.
I guess it’s not true what they say about things being daunting. Turning a year older turns out to be… heartwarming. 🙂
