Happy Birthday to me--- tomorrow

It is Hell to have a birthday 3 days before Christmas!!!!   REALLY!!!!!
Everybody --everybody just says happy birthday to me at Christmas time!!
It gos like this  Happy birthday -- Merry Christmas always together!!!  It is almost as bad as being born on Christmas.....  I never had a birthday party in my life!!! I have had very few gifts for  just my birthday in my life!!  It has always been combined.  Sadly I have lived on this earth now 78 years tomorrow and IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER ANY MORE!!!!

I use to be sick so much of my life.  I didn't have a good start in life.  My first husband beat me every so often!!!  I drank to forget!!!  My diet was awful!!!  I never dreamed I would live this long!!! I was married to a bad husband for 25 years!!!  The only good thing that came out of that marriage was two boys.  They are both complaining of getting old now!!!  LOL 

Then Tom came into my life and I knew right away things could be different!!   They are so very different now--- thank GOD!!!!!   Thank Tom too!!!  I stopped drinking-- cold turkey!!! It took a long time for Tom to see I really needed a diet change but he did see it and for 8 years now we eat super healthy!!!  
This is me now at 78 tomorrow!!!!
Merry Merry Christmas to all out there in Blogvile!!!
Love coming your way,  Fern

    My Brother was born on the 23rd.. He used to complain of the same things. It was difficult to feel sorry for him though... since I never had a birthday party EITHER.. and was born in September. LOL

  6. You should throw yourself a half birthday party in June!
    Wishing you all the best on your birthday!

    I'm glad Tom came into your life, you two make such a great couple. By the way, you are one very beautiful lady.

  11. Happy day, birthday girl. What blessing to have restored health and love in your life.

  12. Fern, I wish you a very happy birthday. I think you look absolutely awesome...happy and healthy.

    I know what you mean about birthdays close to Christmas. Mine is the day after yours, December 23. When I was little I used to think that all the Christmas happiness was someone connected to my birthday. Now I've decided it still is. That makes us Christmas babies extra special, don't you think?

  13. You look great!!! AND having a birthday on the 23rd is a good thing!!! You get the best decorations and people are always around! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful birthday.

  15. Fern! You look fabulous! Happy Birthday. December 21st is my birthday and I know what you mean about the "combo" gifts. Guess when my anniversary is?...February 18! So I have the combo birthday/Christmas and the combo Valentine's Day/anniversary. I should have known better for my anniversary! Sheesh. So glad you and Tom found each other!

  16. Hi Fern, it's really okay you know. Why? Well because it's not so much who you started out with or what happened long ago. What really matters now is what you have and who you have it with. We all have had regrets, maybe a few oops and "ah's" but what the hell, it's called life and it's a part of growing up. We all like you and that's good isn't it? It's a long way up to that truck cab Fern, better to celebrate it closer to the ground. What do you think? ;) Happy birthday Fern.

  17. I can't believe I missed your birthday, Fern!! I hope you had a wonderful day! You are not doing bad for 78!!! xox
