Unsinkable Molly Brown......



Today is my 51st birthday.I can finally say the 50 word. It was hard for me to turn 50 last year but I have discovered a wonderful thing this year about getting older. No it was not the aches and pains that come .It was not the blind eyes and constant looking for some glasses to be able to see the magazine, computer or the person in front of me talking. I discovered how much fun all the other women who are 50 something are having! WE are ladies who are still loving life and learning all kinds of new things every day! I have learned to blog this year -who would have believed I could do this wonderful , fun thing. And I have discovered friends and kindred spirits all over the world. I have time to stop and smell the flowers in my back yard now. I have time for long walks with my dog friend Bella. I have -TIME -that my whole life I have not had. I have gotten reacquainted with myself. The girl I lost along the way through the day to day task of taking care of my family. And now I am going to be a grandmother - wow that is worth turning 50 something.


For 20 years I shared a name with a very famous person -Molly Brown- I always loved her story and the way she never gave up. She has been my hero my whole life. I can sing every song from the Movie by now and seriously think I could survive the Titanic too!! Friends that have known me my whole life call me still -Molly B - unsinkable-Molly Brown. So it was only natural for me to name my blog -Molly B.


Most of us have been through things in life that would make a person just give up - like we all do at times.I always think back on a scene where Molly says "I ain't down yet" I think that has been my theme my whole life-not to give up. If you have not ever seen "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" watch it for me and sing and dance with every scene. Isn't that how life should be just singing and dancing through it!!


Happy Birthday Me - I ain't down yet....

Happy Birthday to you from a fellow 51 year old, someone who first knew and loved you as Molly B. (and when your years were single digits), and proud to say a fellow grandmother. Hope your day is delightful and beautiful!

Hi, Molly, hope your birthday was, and the coming year is, happy and blessed. Thanks for the encouraging words on aging. You're right - there are good things about getting older. We just need reminding sometimes!

PS I love that movie, too!
