I am so happy today !!! Not so much that it's my birthday but because I have lived to be past 50. My father passed away when he was 47 so anytime one of his kids makes it past 50 it's a pretty big deal. There are five of us in all and I am second to the youngest. He smoked two packs of cigarettes a day; Drank about 7 pots of coffee a day & he overate and was obese. He didn't exercise. I recently found out at our family reunion from my fathers brother that my Dad was type 2 diabetic. I found out that my uncle is also diabetic and so was my grandmother. It's really important for me now more than ever to take care of myself so that I will be a good example for my children but also so I will be here for them. My Uncle has taken care of himself, unlike my father, and is still here in his golden years for his family. Happy Birthday To Me !!!
