Today is my birthday. (43 years ) Where has the time gone? I remember when I was a kid , 30 was old and 43 was really old. The more birthdays I had the farther away the 'old' numbers became. Now I think 80 is the new 'old'. LOL
I wanted to show a few old pictures of me growing up. I had some of my 1st birthday but I couldn't find them and I'm too tired to look for them. I will post them next year. This top picture is of my momma and daddy and me. My mom was 'expecting' my little brother. I was around 2 and a half.
This one above is me at around 1 or 2. Mom says the picture was taken at J.C. Penny's. They weighed me first and they charged 'a penny a pound' to take the picture. I will have to ask her how much it cost. That was a neat marketing idea! I don't know why my parents only got this one picture. The packet must have cost too much. They were both so young when they got married. Mom was 15 and daddy was 18, almost 19. She was 16 when I was born and daddy was 20.
Me and momma when I was around 7 years old. We were at a festival in our hometown. It was the 73rd birthday of our town. We all had to dress up 'old fashioned'. I loved my little dress, it was yellow and had a red satin ribbon around the waist. We were outside in the center of the street...they had set up chairs and we were singing gospel songs.
I had a nice birthday. I went out to my daughter and son -in -law's house this morning and she baked me a strawberry birthday cake. They got me a pretty plate that has a verse about mothers on it. It is so pretty. My baby, Garrett got me a movie, some p.j.'s and a tote bag with little hearts all over it. I haven't heard from Cole today. He is back in Tennessee. My friend Stevie brought me supper tonight. I haven't had much of an appetite for the last couple of weeks. I had to force myself to eat a baked potato. My mom called me this morning and my Aunt Jenny and my sister. Tonight my ex-mother in law called me and also my daddy.
