Birthday wishes bring thoughts of wonderful world'

This is my birthday week and I love it. I have had calls and songs and cards and I am having so much fun. I have several "birthday sisters" too and that is fun to share it with them so Evelyn and Wenda, happy birthday.

So my joints might ache a little more than in the past, my wrinkles show more than I'd like and I am more full figured these days. But if I look in the mirror from a distance I don't look so bad and these wrinkles are just laugh lines. I have been blessed with my family and my friends and I know that I am loved.

So in the words of Louie Armstrong, "I think to myself, what a wonderful world."
