If you know me, you know how irritatingly obnoxious I am about my birthday.  This year was a biggie.  I turned 60. Yep, holy cow!  My son made a card that I can't post here but what he wrote was exactly how I feel and if you are friends with me on Facebook, you've seen it!

60.  I can't say the number isn't giving me pause.  But you know, last year, I had some health scares and I've chosen to be grateful to turn 60.  I could have actually stopped being 59 at some point last year and that would have made my sons unhappy. 

My birthday cardsIt's been a totally fun month of birthday celebrations and I am blessed beyond measure with people who love me and who celebrated with me and I am very thankful.

I think I had my last birthday lunch on Tuesday with a dear client and friend that I do not get to see nearly enough.  I'm so thankful for all the meals, laughs, lunches, dinners and drinks that I had to ring in my 60's.  Holy cow.  I'm 60!

I was invited to participate in class with a bunch of agents who belong to a different brokerage.  I was welcomed with open arms, I made so many new friends and I got the kick in the butt that I needed to jump-start my business so that the last quarter makes my first quarter of next year.  It's a commission-only business and you can never stop working, no matter if you have a health scare, so thank you to Cindy Dickerman and the entire group of agents that were so kind and friendly and helpful.  So many young people, it was a blast!  The instructor, Regina Polk was wonderful.

One of the best parts of the past few weeks is I found a cousin.  My Uncle was married and had a child that we kind of lost touch with.  I've thought about him so many times and I found him, he's in Boston and he seems like such a great person.  I wish we could have grown up together, he could have been the little brother I didn't have.  We haven't met in person yet, but we've been texting and it's so cool!

Today, I'm grateful to still be here, for my friends both near and far and for my family and particularly my sons, my sister, my niece and my everlasting friends that make sure that no matter what, I know they are there.

It's my sincerest hope that you have friends you can count on and many reasons to give thanks today and always.


Carpe Diem!

Hi Susan- I'll be hitting 70 very soon and while I choke trying to get the word 70 out, it's better than the alternative. Nina Hollander is right, there definitely is life after 70!!!
