    ...celebrate this birthday [...]  Rather then "I'm a year older" I think of it as "I made it another year, and look at the blessings I have brought with me."  
    I've never understood why people get so upset about birthdays, even before my first husband died and I had cancer three times.

    As Laura Linney observed in a NYT magazine interview sometime over the last year or two, it is a privilege to grow older.  Many never got/get that opportunity.
