Today is my 10th birthday. Ten years worth of living (if you add the two digits of my birthday together they equal ten. I’ll leave it to you to decide which two digits they really are.)
It’s good to be ten.
“I’m so two thousand and ten you’re so two thousand and when…?” (For those who don’t know, that’s a take-off of a line sung by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas in their current hit song Boom Boom Pow on their album “The E.N.D.” (Thanks, hub, for downloading the song on my iPod. It has an infectious beat and is perfect for dancing.)
Music, especially music to dance to, just makes me feel fantastic. I am instantly transported back to the girlish days of my teens and the womanish days of my 30s and 40s when I danced basically every weekend.
These days when I’m walking or riding the T plugged in to the music on the iPod, I have to remember I’m in public because the music “sweets me so”* and before you know it, I’m dancing.
I wish we had a world where you could just stop in the middle of everything and take a dance break, with your dance partners being the people around you! I can envision a vending machine – where you select a song and have an instant party in a designated dance zone. You’d get your dance on then you continue on your merry way.
Anyhow, I am so happy to have another birthday to celebrate. I would like to treat all of my friends and acquaintances out for food and drink and dancing but alas cannot afford it right now. I’ll figure out something soon to scratch that itch.
Giving Thanks!I must thank my mother and father for conceiving me and my mother for loving me, nurturing me, bringing me up to adulthood and continuing the love to this day. I am so blessed to have you, Mom.
There’s a lot to be grateful for (I’m saying those prayers privately every day).
- lots to look forward to,
- challenges to meet,
- goals to achieve,
- desires to experience.
I am blessed to be able to distinguish between wants and needs and to occasionally get a few of the things I want. (Thanks for the gifts – family.)
Thank you to everyone who has sent or phoned a birthday greeting
Happy birthday, to me.
Happy birthday, to me.
Happy birthday dear Me-ee-ee,
Happy birthday to me.
And many more.

Happy Birthday! I love that you love to dance. I love to dance about once a year, and usually by myself, but I love that you love to dance. Dance yourself silly, have a happy birthday!
Happy Birthday to you.
You look good for a 100. I couldn’t make the adding the digits thing work so I just gave you a number. Good thing I know the real number :)
You are the best – many more years to come!!
Happy Belated Birthday! Hope you were able to have that dance!
Belated Happy Birthday! I love that song “Boom Boom Boom” too. You can’t help but move to it! And I love the idea of being able to stop randomly and dance and have it be normal. I think the world would be a much happier place. I do sometimes break out into song though. : )
