Hello 50

Hello 50. 
I see you.


I saw you this morning when I looked into the mirror.
There is a new wrinkle that was not there yesterday.
I heard you laugh when I thought of how in the world did I make it this far?
I also saw you smile back at me when I realized I have no serious health issues.
My hair is a little more gray today and I think I see another hair on my chin.
My eye sight is not 20/20, It's 20/happy according to the optometrist.
I can’t hear as good as I used too but I'll consider that a gift.
I am told that you bring friends when you arrive such as mood swings and hot flashes.
I sure hope I never have to meet them.
It’s ok that I’m older than Sesame Street or the Internet.
because I do not feel a day over 30.

Until I saw you when I looked in the mirror this morning. 

My famous birthday twins are:
