40 is the New 30!!!!



We are not discouraged; rather, although our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this momentary light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal. --2 Cor. 4:16-18

Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy B-day! Which anniversary of your 29th is it? (I can hear my mother-God rest her soul!- now "Michael, gentlemen don't ask a lady her age" "Momma, I ain't a gentleman!") :P

Happy B-day! I hope you are having a wonderful & blessed day!

Just remember - the 20's are MUCH more fun than the teens. 30's are a BLAST. 40's are SOOO MUCH better than the 30's! I can't wait 'til I'm in my 60's. It's bound to be party city! LOL

"i'm a little late."

those words used to throw the hearts of young men into a panic.

for me, i just wish i had gotten to wish you a happy b-day a little earlier in the day ... not when it is already 3/4 over.

enjoy the rest of it.

Cathy, you're right about bloggers and bull, but I'm not sure I want to look too closely at that...

Terry, I'm excited that you're going to be 42. That's a special number, you know. As big as Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Happy birthday, Cathy! Blessings, etc., today and through the year.

No, no, no!! 50 is the new 30!!! Don't you listen to Oprah? Sheesh! (Since I'll be turning 50 in two years, I have to get cracking on educating everyone about this fact. Never too early, right?)

Anyway-- that would make 40 the new 20~ ;-)

Happy Birthday, dear Caaaaatttthhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, Happy Birthday to you!!!

Many happy and blessed returns to of the day to you!!

Cathy,
orf course it is history only in the sense that i recall hearing of such things from acquaintances.
happy birthday, now, even a little later!
and as georgette commented, 40 is the new 20 - 50 is the new 30 ... i'm not sure what happened at 60, though.

Uncle Jim: Eventually, we start running out of excuses. LOL!

Georgette: LOL! I like your math.

Ma: Thanks! I'm keeping my birthday vibe for a while so it's never too late for the well wishes! :-)

QM: That's great! I hope you have a blog report. I'm sorry that I could not be there.

I'm glad you're still in your Birthday Vibes, so it's okay that I'm a day late in saying Happy 40th! The 40's were my best years.

I'm still in my Birthday Vibes and mine was April 3rd. Your 40th is a real milestone, but mine was a MILESTONE I didn't ever expect to see.

I love your blog, tho' I don't get here very often. You have some great friends.

Redneck: Very smoothly stated.

Christine: Thanks!

maryellen: Thank you. I am truly blessed.

Hey, another 4 comments and it will be the same # of comments as my age! LOL!

Don't you believe it!! Sixty (60) is the new 40, Hon! Sit back and enjoy the ride, because it only gets more interesting from now on! Best wishes for a (belated) Happy Birthday from a 61-yr-old (young minded) Canadian reader. God bless!
