Goodness me, I bless this day, as I turn 43

Does this look like the face of a 43 year old, I ask myself as I look in the mirror..
the mirror answers back
"hell yes, Lisa!!"
Not anymore a spring chicken.
not any sense of the word.
not yet a lot of things.
Ive got a lot of living to do.
A lot of life to live, fun to be had and dreams to fulfill.

At 43, I wish myself years of happiness, love and joy.

I hope for myself to have patience. Gratitued for all the things I have.

Not to be jealous or unkind or wanting for the things I dont.

I would like peace and piece of mind.


Happy Birthday, girlfriend..

Your an awesome girl and I love being you!!

Happy Birthday! You look great! (and when you get to 50, you'll think how young you were). Inside I'm about 25 but I'm not saying how old I really am. Now I think I was quite a babe at 40. I have a friend who's 40 and she seems really young to me and gorgeous. I think we should just forget about age, take care of our health and enjoy our lives.

You look like a million bucks! I hope I look that good when I'm 43...oooooooooh wait! I already did 43!
I hope you had a fantabulous day and since your birthday fell on a Saturday you should just go ahead and have a BIRTHDAY WEEK. I declair it LISA WEEK until next Saturday at 11:59!
Go have cocktails, eat Mac and Cheese, get your nails done, sleep late, and go's your week!
Happy Birthday
