This is my Sunday message to me! 🤣 I know age is just a number because you can tell by my sense of humor I’m obviously 10 years old. 👧🏻 Yes, today is my birthday... and my Dad's!!! 🥳 I was born on his birthday, not induced... I’m legit. 🙃 So... Happy Birthday to my “Birthday Buddy in Heaven," it’s NOT the same without you! 🎂😘 The other picture I posted is what I got for my birthday from my daughters Brianna and husband David… When I’m asked if I’d like something, I always respond with, “Yes please, a side of beef and a wedding cake”... Brianna said “well now you got everything you always asked for. 🥳 Humor runs deep in our family 🤣 Everyone has been so kind and sent so much love to me today. Thank you, it truly is a blessing to have another birthday. 😌 The older I get the more I realize I’m a lot like my Mom… we used to tease each other all the time—and boy, we LOVED to laugh! I can hear her right now laughing at the meme I posted. 😆 I remember when my Mom turned 60 I looked at her and with a big goofy smile said, “so how does it feel to be an old sea hag?” She tossed it right back to me and said, “oh you little sea hag in the making, I don’t know how, but you’ll know when it happens to you!” 😉 Well... here I am... an old sea hag! 🤣 I am in good company though, because Barbie and I are the same age—we’re 1959ers, although she’s aging better and that really ticks me off! 😠 The most important gift my Mother gave me for the best quality of life is one I use every day and that is to find humor in everything! So make sure you are laughing... every single day—do it for Olive!! I'll say it again... remember age is just a number. It makes me feel so good to say I’ve never been happier or more at peace in my life than now...so bring it on!!! And I’m talking the cake 🎂!! Have a good laugh for me today—humor solves everything! #HappySunday
The second picture was the gift she got from her daughter, Brianna. It was a couple of steaks and a wedding cake and Marie explained in her caption why the gift was perfect, writing:
"The other picture I posted is what I got for my birthday from my daughters Brianna and husband David… When I’m asked if I’d like something, I always respond with, “Yes please, a side of beef and a wedding cake”... Brianna said “well now you got everything you always asked for. Humor runs deep in our family"
In her lengthy caption, Marie went on to say she knows that age is just a number. She went on to say that if her humor is any indication then she is “obviously 10 years old.”
She also revealed that she shares a birthday with her late father, George Osmond. He passed away in 2007.
“Happy Birthday to my Birthday Buddy in Heaven, it’s NOT the same without you!” Marie wrote.
She added that in her books "humor solves everything." In the post, Marie attributes her own sense of humor to her late mom, Olive, who Marie also honored with a sweet mother's day tribute.
“I am in good company though, because Barbie and I are the same age — we’re 1959ers, although she’s aging better and that really ticks me off! ” Marie cracked.
