Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Card from Hubby
Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 59 years old! YIKES that sounds old but I will admit that I don't feel old (most of the time). I don't mind telling my age anymore and that is because I have learned that everyday is a gift from God and why should I not celebrate every gift!  Plus it's not like I'm 60, like some people I know.  I am enjoying my life and so I proudly tell eveyone my age. I hope you are at an age where you can be proud of your age as well.

Hubby gave me some great and wanted gifts. He knows that I love gadgets and got me just that. More gadgets for this gadget girl.  I did tell you he was smart, right?  I got garden supplies from my west coast family for whenever the snow melts up here and I can get out there. I got serenaded not once but twice over the phone. First by a good friend (and then of course we talked for over an hour) and then by granddaughters!  Oh how I love to hear them sing.

Then there was an explosion on facebook of good wishes and love.  I even got serenaded at work!  What fun. All in all it was a great day and I do feel special and loved.

Since my birthday fell in the middle of the week we will go out to eat this weekend. In the meantime, we are celebrating life and relaxing.

I hope you have a great Easter and find a church where you worship the reason for Easter.  I hope you stop for a bit sometime during the egg hunt, or passing the ham, or taking pictures and remember we are truly blessed because a man did not just die for us, but he also rose from the dead for us. His death was not unusual, his resurrection was!!

Happy Easter All.  


  1. Wishing you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sounds like you got treated like a queen! Hope you have a BLESSED Easter on Sunday, as well!

  3. You and I are the same age, well you have me by 5 months! Happy birthday, it sounds like it was a good one. Hopefully, you'll be trying out those gadgets soon :)

  8. So glad you had a great day. Birthdays are one of the best reason to be on Facebook : ) Happy Easter!

  9. Happy birthday! 60 is the new 40! ha! So, you are REALLY young! I have a saying I keep by my bathroom mirror... "Live your life and forget your age." It's a helpful reminder to me to enjoy each day and to not think about how old I am (and how I'm supposed to act.) Enjoy your special day!

  10. Happy Birthday (a little late)!
