My birthday

Posted by Leona Bergstrom

Today I am celebrating my 57th birthday! I have always loved birthdays, and this year is no exception for me. My family has already thrown a party and given me some awesome gifts. I’m traveling the whole week of my birthday and can’t wait to enjoy the East Coast with my husband – including a Broadway play in New York City! I find this season of my life to be filled with new experiences, adventures and opportunities.

Several years ago a friend of mine sent me a birthday card that I have kept, treasured and shared. It encapsulates my hopes for this day!
Sometimes a birthday isn’t our favorite day.
We look in the mirror and wonder,
“Who is this older person who suddenly appeared?”
Funny how we never really noticed her before.
Welcome her.
She comes bearing gifts of perspective and wisdom.
She is your finest accomplishment
---So far!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONA!!! Have a great week traveling on the East Coast. I enjoy you and Terry's blog and read it faithfully. You two will continue to inspire me as we all grow older together.

Love, Ali

Hi Terry, and Happy Birthday, Leona! I was editing the web site for our practice, and clicked on the therapists web site for Whatcom County, which led me here. I am glad to find the links still work, life is still good, and you are blogging away. Hello from Tisch and give our love to your families!

Happy Birthday, Leona!...A fellow birthday was the 1st of October. However, there is a bit of an age discrepancy. Ask Terry and she will tell you that I am only 25....again this year.
