Today is my mom's birthday. It's not just any birthday for Mama Steele...but it's her 70th. Now some people would probably say “you really shouldn't tell her age...she might take offense.” Not in the Steele house. We've always celebrated every birthday with no regrets, no depression because “I can't believe I am _____ years old.” Life is so precious, and every birthday we have, should be celebrated – not complained about.

As I always say to people who complain about how old they are, especially on milestone birthdays, “it beats the alternative.” I will celebrate with my mom this weekend.

Happy 70th Birthday Mama Steele!
