On this date in 1958 Josephine and Orville Starr
became proud parents to their one and only child,
Our family had a Birthday party tonight.
No, not just for me.
As I have mentioned in past blogs November is BD month,
we have four in one week.
So, tonight we had a big party for all of us.
I haven't felt well for a couple days and didn't really want to go.
I pulled myself together and went anyway,and I'm glad I did,
being with family is good medicine.
I want to thank my dear friend Carol G. for the voice mail
she left me wishing me a Happy Birthday and reminding me I was
" well on my way to becoming a primitive"
I would like to share with you a birthday message from the writings of
that my parents gave me today...
Words I can only aspire to.
If you can value truth
and friendship over beauty, wealth or fame,
If you can share your gifts
and talents wisely,
leaving someone better off
than when you came,
If you find happiness
in simple pleasures and see the rainbow and not the rain,
If you have faith to keep right on believing
in miracles that no one can explain,
If you look until you see the good in others
and keep your spirit honest,true, and free,
Then you'll be, not just happy and successful,
but the woman only you
were meant to be.
Thank You, Mom and Dad
I Love You Both!
