One of my favorite old photos was taken at my birthday party in Storybook Land, a “castle” attraction at a local park. I’m wearing my favorite orange party dress and a shy smile. My look suggests that I am both “loving it” and “hating it!” (I’m seated in the royal red chair.) The setting would still make me happy; it was straight out of a book of fairy tales! But, I have not always felt comfortable as the center of attention.
Decades later, though, I don’t mind the attention one bit. In fact, I’ve been celebrating all week! I will comfortably and enthusiastically receive the good wishes of family and friends. It’s my week and I’ll claim it!
Feel free to remind me next week if I haven’t changed my About Me page to reflect that I am now a 57-year-old woman!
