There are moments when I look at this lady in the mirror and see the little girl behind those laugh lines, wrinkles and gray hairs that seem to be multiply daily.

  To that little girl who thought 30 was old and never ever imagined how she would feel to turn 45.
So today, I am focusing on all my incrediable blessings that God has given me these past 45 years. 

For my loving and supportive family, for my dear, sweet friends near and far, for this creative blogging community that has pushed me to grow as a person and helped me discover my true creative passions.  For our health, confortable home, jobs and cars that get us where we need to go.  For being able to share my creative passion with others.  For so many blessings that I am still continuing to count... 

I am thanking God for each one.  

I am indeed blessed in so many ways today and every day.

Happy Birthday too, to my dear twin sister, Sherri.  Love you sis!

Happy, happy, happy birthday to you! And to your sister, too. I will be 46 in February. I remember when I thought my mom was old at age 30. Now I am thinking 45 isn't so old but it still seems weird to say the number. :) Hope your day is great. Best wishes, Tammy

Happy, happy birthday, Sheila! You are absolutely beautiful, my friend--and 45 is a GREAT age! I'm creeping dangerously close to the big 5-0, myself!

Hoping today is wonderful in every way, dear friend...thanks for all the beauty and joy you bring to us all through the year...


{p.s. I still see the little girl in me through all the wrinkles and gray hair...here's to keeping that little girl shining through forever!}
