Many ways to make life worthwhile

My 74th birthday has come and gone. David and I took advantage of the free birthday meals at Anna Miller’s in Pearlridge and at the Cattle Company in Pearl City. We had a great time eating with gusto and relishing every morsel. Maria and Lisa called to wish me a happy birthday.

I am in poor health, but I have managed to outlive my brother, my sister in law, and my brother in law. It just goes to show that you don’t have to be in perfect health to make it to 74.

The main thing to know about me is that I have a nice house to live in and a nice husband to live with.

Tomorrow, my younger daughter Lisa will arrive from the mainland for her 2 week vacation in Hawaii. David will pick her up at the airport. Lisa likes staying in the guest room, because of the air conditioner, the TV, and the private bathroom. Further, she may drive our car, so she doesn’t have to rent one.

Next Sunday, we shall host a party for Lisa.

There are so many wonderful ways to make life worthwhile.

    I had no idea of your age and I am surprised. A good place to live and a good partner must help a lot with life. Yes, when your invitation arrives, I would like the bedroom with air con. Thanks.

    …we are the same age and at this moment I’ve lived longer than my parents. Next week I’m off to Maui for two months and I always feel the healthiest there, few things beat a walk on the beach.

    We have a great life with no major health issues and no money issues. Life is good in Hawaii!

    I didn’t think you were in poor health, besides having a cold.

    You seem to have the secret to a good life, which I think is along the lines of accept what is and enjoy it.

    Happy birthday, Gigi. You can’t catch me, being three years older than you and in good health. I’ll always be three years older but who knows what the future holds as far as health goes?

    As long as you’re around to collect those free meals, you’re doing okay. Happy b’day!

    Happy belated birthday to you, Gigi. You are indeed blessed with a nice house and a nice husband. We may slow down with age but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying our life and those around us. Hope you have a great party for Lisa.

    Your positive outlook on life keeps you young. Living in a beautiful place sure helps. I lived on Oahu for 11 years and still return often. It will always hold a special place in my heart

    Happy 74 Gigi, I have 2 years on you so you are a young kid to me. I do love your guest room so warm and welcoming but most of all self-contained.
