Older And Wiser?

Today is my very own Birthday.
I don't usually mention it when it occurs.. (actually I mentioned it every year, I just checked back... he he he) I have a birthday occurrence on an annual basis you see... but this time I am 50. I very much want to thank everyone who sent good wishes via text message, Facebook, email and snail mail and with beautiful cards, all full of lovely things written to make me feel loved and special... extreeeemely special actually and I'll say another thank you for the lovely gifts... I now smell fabulous, I'm not hungry and I have a room full of blooms amongst other things! Lucky me eh....
Then there's this...
A package with a pressie... just for me,
Oooh 'eck, I wondered, what could it be?
Quilting ladies had all conspired,
to make me a quilt and here we spy it.
Instigated, I'm told, by Jenny
Birthday wishes, there were many!
Tears of joy and disbelief
I pose for photos
all be it brief-ly.
A closer picture so you can see better
There are lots of 50's, in case I forget it
Thank you again for all the good wishes
I am now 50, it's wonderful this is!
OK so I'm no poet... but I am 50... and counting...
Happy Birthday to me!

Turning the Big 5-0
The big 5-0 is finally here,
Yes, you're turning 50 this year.
50 years of hopes and dreams,
Rainy days, and golden sunbeams,
Turning 50 is not so bad, it seems.

Take a look back on all you've achieved so far.
A family that loves you, and thinks you're a star,
Friends who have proven themselves through the years,
By standing beside you through laughter and tears.
Turning 50 is really quite good, it appears.

Because You're 50
F is for how fabulous everyone thinks you are.
I is for how interesting all your experiences have made you.
F is also for the fun you bring into everyone's lives.
T is for how the tender way you show people that you care.
Y is for just being you, the person that everyone adores.
