how big is 41?


Be totally honest with me....
is 41 a really big number?

I mean, compared to the national deficit,
it's a mere vapor of a number.

Compared to China's population...
I mean, come on...41 is nothing, right?

Sigh.

But I suppose,
when you look at the average life-expectancy...
41 is....(gulp) kinda big.

At least half-way big.

Ok, maybe old is a better word.

No, nevermind...I'll have none of that.

41 is NOT old....

because today,
I turn 41.

HaPpY BiRtHdAy to ME!

Happy Birthday! And no, of course not, 41 is NOT old! Unless you're asking someone under the age of 25! Which we won't do. Have a great day! Kim

Leah said...

No way that 41 is even close to being old! Because that would mean I am right behind you! Seriously, you do not look even close to 41. Happy Birthday!

Stefanie said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
P.S. 41 is NOT old... if it were, that would mean that I am old. Which I am, of course, NOT :)
Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day!

Have a great birthday!!! I USED to think 41 was old....... until I got so awfully close myself (I won't say HOW close.....).

Mandi said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI!!!!!! No, 41 is NOT a big number. You know they say your 40's are the new 20's!

My birthday was on the 9th (35). It is nice to see we share the same month.

I'm 45, so you are still a baby! It isn't old. And as long as we stay busy with the LORD's work, we wont really care about our age, because we are living an adventure! So go live big!!!! for His glory!
Loves and happy birthday!

Hezra said...

OH Sweet friend... wish I had known ahead of time. Happy birthday!! No it is not old, silly, Not when you look 29! AND they say you are as old as you feel, so that would be what, 18?? lol love you!!

Tracey and Chuck said...

Happy birthday! And no, 41 is absolutely not old (especially because if it is, I'll be old in less than 5 years, which is NOT happening!). Have a wonderful day!

Melissa said...

Happy Birthday. And 41 is not old at all !!!

Michele said...

Happy Birthday!! I hope your day is awesome! I agree with hezra - you look 29, who cares how old you really are. As long as you look good, right?

Have a great day!

Martha said...

Happy, Happy Birthday!!!!!

No, 41 is young, very young. It is just a number, it doesn't define you.

See you at the gym tonight :o)

Madeleine said...

41??

HA! 41 is just getting started! I barely remember 41.

Oh wait, that was last year. lol.

(The mind does go, slightly.)

But you know how that old favorite saying of mine goes...

" It's hard to stay angry if you forget everything."

My baby will be 3 in January.

41 is not old.

Happy Birthday to a Great Looking 41 Year Old!

Jen said...

Happy Birthday Lori. Hope your day if filled with many wonderful blessings!!!!!!!

BTW......age is JUST a number, it's all how we look at life. And I look at 41 as VERY, VERY young.
(mainly because I'm on the down side to 50!!)

Nancy said...

41 is not old baby girl. Have a great day.

Tracy said...

Happy Birthday Lori! 41? Really? You wear it well girl. Have a wonderful day!

JR said...

Happy Birthday Lori!!! You are a spring chicken compared to me.....I'm turning (dare I say/type it) 5-0 on Monday!!! YIKES - I never got over turning 40 and here I am 10 years later.....

I guess we just have to make the best of it and celebrate ALL MONTH!!!

Sending you love & prayers from Durango!

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday Lori! 41 is not old at all. You are only as old as you feel. I heard that is 25.

Elissa said...

Getting older sure beats the alternative!

And please tell me 41 isn't actually old, because I can't bear the thought of being OLD when I drop my FIRST kid off at Brownies! :) Please don't tell me that people will be saying, "oh look, Lily's grandma brought her!"

Tony and Rett said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

And don't sweat the number...it is just that. A number.

Enjoy the day!

Patty said...

Happy Birthday dear friend!!!!! I hope your day is super great and full of joy!

Karen said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

I have to agree with everyone else. 41 is not old!!! If it was I would be older than old:-( (not by much, but still older) Wow, 3 teenagers at the young age of 41. How do you do it?:) Oh wait, I almost forgot you also have a preschooler. Wow!

If I had a decent voice I would sing to you, so my present to you is that I won't sing:-)

Have a great day!!!

Jean said...

Happy Birthday! You are just a kid- no worries!! Just enjoy!!

41 is 4 dimes and 1 penny, 3 dimes, 2 nickels and 1 penny, 8 nickels and one penny, 3 dimes and 11 pennies! Guess what I've been teaching lately?

Have a great day!

Mei Mei s and Mayhem said...

Cari said...

Happy Birthday, dear friend!! It's not the age, it's how you feel. :)

Have a great day!!

Holly said...

Happy birthday. Life has just begun :)

Tina said...

Happy Birthday!! Today is my 15th wedding anniversary!

Tesseraemum said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are actually as young as you feel!! In which case you can't possibly have teenagers!! If you intend to live to be 101 like I do you have 60 years to go! That's still ALOT!!!

Chris said...

Can't be old...cause I'm not old just older than you....and don't ask that kid of yours :^)
Enjoy your day!

Jerry and Christy said...

Lori Happy Birthday! Forty-one is not old. If 41 is old then 52 is over the hill and I'm not over the hill. I have a 3 year old to raise. The only time I feel old is when I realize my oldest is 32.
What a blessing to be so young with teenagers. Enjoy your young birthday!
Christy

tinacd said...

Since I'll be 43 next month, I've gotta agree that 41 is not old! (Of course my kids like to remind me that I'm almost an antique - thanks guys!)

Happy Birthday!

Kathy said...

Happy Birthday!!! I agree with Jean you
are just a kid. If 41 is old then
I am in real trouble because I never
think of myself as old and trust me
I am much older than you.
Have a wonderful blessed day!

McNew Family said...

happy birthday, friend!!!! I think I remember back in ancient history when I was only 41!!!!

mom2-4boys said...

Happy Birthday to you!!! Hope it was your best Birthday!

I was 41 two years ago... Don't worry it is not that bad.

Karin said...

Happy, happy birthday!! Eat lots of cake and enjoy being in your 40's. It's the best! Seriously!

Holly said...

The older I get, the younger 41 becomes! How's that? :) Happy Birthday! It's all about how old you FEEL anyway, and I know you feel about 25 or so. So enjoy it!

Denise said...

Not as big as 42...which I will be in January! Happy Birthday!!

Suzette said...

41 is oh so young! I also celebrated this week and turned the big 44! Can't believe it, I used to think 50 was SO old, now it seems SO young. My how our perspectives change over the years.
Happy Birthday!

connie said...

Ummm, 41 is so NOT OLD! If so, when I turn 45 in a month I would be old, and, in your words, "I'll have none of that!" Got way too many reasons to stay young! Happy Birthday, sweet friend!
Connie
