Reflections on My Birthday


Today is July 18th and it is my birthday.  While some like to make resolutions
on New Year's Eve, I like to reflect on the past year on my birthday.  I ask myself
what I have achieved in the past year?  What goals did I achieve and which ones
did I miss?




Are there any lifelong dreams that have yet to be fulfilled?
Have I been a good and kind person?  



Every new day brings another chance to be the person I really
want to be.  I will be taking the next couple of days off to greet this
new year of my life.  Until I see you all again I will be joining ~

Vintage Thingie Thursday (because I am vintage)

Bentley ~ I think it's time to start working on another backyard
camping theme!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  9. Happy Birthday, Susan! When you add up your accomplishments, please add that you have brought inspiration and joy into MY life with your blogs! Love the "backyard camping theme". Hope you don't mind if I use it as my desktop background and save it for inspiration for when my grandgirls next come to visit. Remember that the most important birthdays are those yet to come!!!! God Bless you, your loved ones, of course, including dear Bentley.

  18. Hi Susan, I have missed you and Bentley. We have had a crazy busy year so far but I'm back. Sometimes life is just too busy for blogging.

    Happy birthday. I love your photos of the camping scene. We just arrived home from camping. (in a fifth wheel) Not exactly roughing it but fun all the same.

    Happy days to you and Bentley.
    xo, Jeanne
