Happy Birthday to Me

Jeannie M. Bushnell and her grandmother

Yes, June 2nd is my birthday. The calendar bumps ahead, and this Gemini turns 39 years old.

I’m neither who or where I thought I would be at this age. I’ve overcome and lived through moments I could never have imagined occurring.

Unto them a child was born, and clearly—as my grandmother adorned in her funeral black gown exhibits—they were pleased.

Baby Jeannie certainly doesn’t know what to think of all this.

My face says it all.

 

 

I truly believe that it is a privilege to age, and I can’t wait to see what waits for me 39 years down the road.
