Birthday Girl

You don’t get older, you just get better.
~ Shirley Bassey

All I want to do today is to turn my back on the world and wait for this day to pass.

What I will do, however, is to have cake and snacks with my husband, kids, grandkids and my best friend, because they will not allow me to be alone on my birthday. Last year, on the morning of my fiftieth birthday, I visited my mom in hospital. I celebrated my birthday then because she wanted it. Today, before everyone arrives, I will be at mom’s grave. I have to. For me.
