I make a big deal out of being able to say “I am sixty-three years old.” That’s six decades plus three years. A humongous accomplishment!
I feel such a fortunate woman. I have always been surrounded by beautiful and wonderful people. Have been in love a few times, always had a ball in the place where I was residing at the moment…I remember particularly St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Island. What an exciting, incredibly fun and some heart breaks. But all in all, whenever I look back, I can say I did it my way and with His blessings, everything turned out just right.
I learned my lessons, I am still looking forward to learning and experience very much. It is a process full of promises and surprises.
But one very important thing I must recognize, when the going gets tough, show your class and do it with style. Nothing beats going through hard times, than doing it in a classy way and with much style. Even if the mascara is pouring down your face. Nowadays, they sell that stuff that is water proof. That’s exactly why I don’t use it any more. To remove the holy thing, you almost have to remove the entire eye. No mascara for me!
Well, my darling daughter is arriving in a few moments, so I have to get ready and look my best 63rd time around.
So…it is today…21 October, 2011…my 63rd Birthday.
Happy Birthday to me, to me and to me! Oh, yes, I will be back on Monday!
Your Happy Contessa
