Looking in the mirror on my 70th Birthday and what do I see,
I'm finally happy with the person looking back back at me
I'm no longer critical and demanding
now I'm grateful and understanding
I've put this body thru it
I've broken every bone,
in tiny miracles I'm all healed
in my heart and soul I'm home
It's taken 70 years to get here,
in tears and joy I've found my happy,
so now I'm going to end this poem,
before I get too sappy!
Happy Birthday Indeed!

"A timeless ageless idol. Happy birthday and here's to the happiest years always in front of you!" singer Debbie Gibson commented on her post.

"You are an inspiration, a true icon and a ray of pure sunshine!! You make 70 look like 40!" another wrote.
