I've competed in the Olympic Games 5 times. My experiences are immeasurable, my regrets are few....and I wouldn't trade them for all the world!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JACKIE.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
So, it is April 14th and once again it is time for me to celebrate another birthday!! To be honest, I am not a huge birthday person. I don't usually make a big deal about it. I mean it's nice for my friends to acknowledge it, but I don't need a big production made. I'm not one of those women who fears getting older either. I see the beauty in embracing it. I'm just glad that another year has passed and I am still happy and healthy. What more can I really ask for???
Unfortunately, I will still have practice later today and it's Monday so that means it's going to be hard as heck. My coach Brooks shows no mercy...it's just like any other day, and so it should be!!
I already had a nice birthday dinner with my friend who treated me to a great meal. I always have fun when I'm with him. Man, I love the American black, LOL! (Inside joke.) Thanks a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed myself ;-) When you can spend time with your friends and the people that matter to you, then it's all good and today I will be surrounded by friends.
So thanks to you all for sharing the past few months with me and here's to all that lies ahead this year. Let life be great and grand and gratifying and let me be gracious, and giving and grateful!! Cheers!!
