Today I celebrated my birthday......sixty-two years......I cannot believe all the cards, calls, messages that I have received.  If ever I doubted that I was loved, today has proved that I am.
My sister Pat, and her daughter Jayna cooked lunch for me today, it was wonderful.
It has been a beautiful restful day.  We walked the dogs, took a nap, and had might not be the most exciting birthday, but it was one of those I will remember.

I always miss my dad so very much on my birthdays.  He loved to make a big deal about birthdays, and he always wanted to be the very first to wish you Happy Birthday.  I can't tell you how many times he called me at 6:00 am to sing Happy Birthday.  If I could just hear him sing one more time......and get one of his funny crazy cards.

Sixty-two years......a long time, a blink of an eye......a life that has been blessed with friends and family.  I am a lucky woman......I am a blessed woman.


  1. Happy Birthday Jilda! Glad you had a most beautiful day! Take care

  2. Happy Birthday Jilda, it sounds like a perfect day... those days are the best and the ones you always remember :)

  3. You can add beautiful to your list! 62? No way! Sorry your Dad can't be here but I'm guessing he's singing up above just for you! Happy Birthday Jilda!
