Today is FaithfulNewCJ's 43rd birthday. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" /> Can you believe it? I bet you thought I was MUCH, MUCH younger, huh? :P Someone as crazy as me just HAS to be a kid! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> So far, I have celebrated my day by sleeping in; taking a long, hot bath and washing my hair; and drinking cappuccino and grape juice. I got THE BEST gift ever from my beau, and whilst it shall remain between us for a bit, let's just say that for the REST OF MY LIFE I'm going to be happy on my birthday! For a long time, my birthdays were ignored or worse--and then a few years ago the Columbine Shootings were on my birthday--so let's just say that I did not look at my birthdays with joy. Now, for the entire rest of my life, I WILL. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

So, since the birthday girl is fabulous, I have an offer you can't refuse. Today I give a gift to YOU ALL and will answer any and all questions that are shot my way. ((((((HUGZ)))))))) to everyone here on MB.

Happy Birthday to you......

It sounds like you had a wonderful day, and it sounds like all is well again with your BF! I'm very happy for you!

So, what was it you said??? We can ask anything??
What was the gift? A ring??
Had to take a shot and guess.

I will turn 43 on my next Birthday. I hope I am as excited as you are CJ! This whole age of 40 and then some now has been not too fun! I am not enjoying these numbers!

Keep smiling CJ, it looks/sounds good on you!

43 is like a wonder year. There are times after that when you loose that feeling of knowing that you are the BEST you can be - but more often than not, you realize that life is good and you are the best you can be at any given moment.

There's suddenly a peace that allows you to accept your own imperfections, and realize that there are things in life you can't change - and really don't want to - because they are just not your responsibility. It's precious because it opens up a whole new opportunity to see the future with a perspective of what the past really was (a place where we learn that life is what we make of it - and we can make every day of our future better, by just making today a great day).

So, go out there and have a great year!!! (And that's an order from someone who's older and wiser <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" /> - lol) I gotta tell you - that older and wiser don't necessarily go together anywhere but in print - sometimes I think my 10 year old has me whooped in the wiser department!!! <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Hugs and Happy Birthday!!!

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

I send you a magic, <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> fatless, <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> carbless, <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />delicious <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> chocolate <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> cake. One that is so mouthwateringly good that it will literally cause you to drool <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="" />. Well, Ladies In Waiting don't drool in public if they can avoid it. So, maybe you won't drool. But you know what I mean.

Happy, happy birthday to you, friend.

And a wonderful birthday couldn't happen to a more deserving person!

And I mean that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(((((CJ))))))
