I'm 33! Happy Birthday to Me!
Okay, so a lady doesn't speak of her age. But I think I disqualified for being a lady the first time I climbed a tree in a skirt without any underwear on as a little girl. (Hsst, say the inner voices, they didn't know about that!) See? Inner voices. Definitely not a lady.

Last year at New Years we wished each other a happier one, and said this year couldn't possibly be worse than the year before (and we were right). My 32nd year ended with a shitload of pain, no doubt about it. I'm certainly still processing many things about that, and Bill and I are still in the midst of the technical details of dissolving our marriage, but my 33nd year has been a year more of growth than of pain, even despite losing my grandmother along the way. I am coming out of it stronger and healthier both physically and mentally than the year before. Change can be good, even when you weren't looking for it to happen. And I expect even more changes in the coming year: more growth, and more good.

Thank you for all the birthday well-wishes I've already received. May you all have a merry day full of music and laughter, or at least heartwarming smiles. Because this is MY day, and I said so. :)

You go my Sister!!! Happy birthday to a wonderful, talented, exuberant, smart, and continuously-growing Woman whom I am so proud to call my sister. You are right about this past year; it will continue to get better. Keep it up and I hope you have a great day! If you need a mental break just remember me singing!

Lots of love,
Sarah

Happy Birthday! Congrats for surviving and thriving through another year of this madness.

Ah, yes, the power of Because I Said So, or BISS for short. It's legendary in many circles for it's magical abilities to warp reality, frequently for the better.

Happy Birthday. You're the only person I know personally who's been mentioned in a book I've read. (The Ghost Brigades) Do you feel famous yet? ;)

Happy birthday! I'll be in MI next week (Dec 9 - 15), so maybe I can take you out for a birthday drink or dessert or something then. :)

I need to get my computers to start reminding me of your birthday again.
