It’s September: How many of you are older this month?

Written By: JoJoisms - Sep• 01•13

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASeptember is my birth month.  I’ll be older this month.  How many of you are celebrating a birthday this month?  Do you feel older?  Are you a Spring Chicken?  Has your chicken sprung already?  Have you been well seasoned?  Or has your goose been cooked?

I was thinking about how I’m now entering the second half of my century here on planet Earth. I hope to live to be 100.  It’s a nice round number, don’t you think?

I was looking through some pictures the other day trying to find some of my daughter when she had Shirley Temple hair so she could prove to her grad school friends she was her double.  (Only cuter!)  There I am with my daughter. Its’ a few years ago so I’m a little more well-preserved in this one.

Anyway, I came across some old pictures of myself and I thought two things:

1. I was YOUNG ONCE!  and

2. I was THIN once upon a time!

You can’t go home again and I don’t think I’d like to.  However, it would be nice to shove that old woman out of my reflection.  She’s a bit more wrinkled than I’d like and she’s got some nerve wearing all my clothes!

So how many of you are older this month?  I hate to break it to you, but you all are!  Even if you’re a young whipper snapper.  It’s just that not all of you will be celebrating a birthday this month.  😀

    Your new blog is very purple-y! Your post reminded me I have only a couple of months before my birthday. I have lots to ponder and some new goals in my life too. Even though we are not “spring chickens” anymore, we obviously still have a lot left to give. I hope that you have a great birthday this month 🙂
