Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear ladies!
I had a birthday Sunday and
I just had to share with you this sweet
gift that I received from my son.

It's a child's cupboard and is one of the cutest
things I have ever seen!

Birthdays are sweet and I am coming to terms
with the mounting years.  In fact, I feel very
blessed to be my age!

You've heard it said that if you'd known you
would have lived this long you'd have taken better
care of yourself.  I think I've reached that age
and regret some of the choices I've made.

I don't, however, feel that it's too late for me to make
some positive affirmations toward a healthier
lifestyle.  Drink more water, eat more fruit and
vegetables, eat less sugar, exercise more.

I have always had a positive attitude and look
forward to the second half of my life with faith
that it will be just as productive and fulfilling.

I have goals and dreams and plans.
I don't believe that there is an expiration
date on your dreams.  I have
many things I still want to do!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me
today.  I hope enjoyed seeing my sweet
little cupboard.  It almost looks bigger in these
pictures than it really is.  It stands just over 45"
tall.  It still has all it's original glass knobs!
Have a beautiful day!

Happy Belated Birthday Twyla! The little cupboard is so sweet and the perfect display piece for some cherished collectibles. What a great gift! I agree with you 100% on your thought about aging and the need to take better care of ourselves. Some things we can't control but we need to pay attention to the things about our health that we do have a say over. I think of you often and hope you are feeling OK.

Well you must be one special Mom to get a gift that is so thoughtful from a son. He must really know what Mom loves. Happy Birthday by the way!
