20 birthday bumps

It is my birthday on Thursday (!!!)-----  An alarm clock will ring & suddenly 20 years old will be my reply when people ask me how old I am. Not very much has changed since I was two feet tall. I've only gotten fatter, longer and now I know the difference between an electrical socket and a fork.

I suppose there's more change in me than that. I'm more careful than I used to be. Careful to read only what interests me and careful to make a life only surrounded by things I love. If something exists to make breathing a little harder, like math or a bad friend, I keep it away. There is just not enough time on earth to waste it with a troubled mind. So I go outside, I count the treetops, I visit good people, I play my banjo, and I listen to the birds. I do what I please and its a nice way to live.

Its hard to believe I've been around for the goodbye of 20 Summers and the drying of 19 Winters. Seems like a remarkable feat and all I've had to do was breathe!

  3. Happy early birthday! I'm turning 20 next April and it feels surreal. I don't feel like I'm 20, it feels so old to say! Haha. But you're right, I have learned to be more careful of who I let in to my life and who I trust to stay in it. Hope you have a wonderful birthday! I've enjoyed reading your blog for a long time and can't wait for the years to come!
