Today I am 40!

Yes, this morning the face looking back at me in the mirror is 40 years old.  Those years have flown by. 

All the things I worried about day after day, year after year, most didn't happen, and even if they did, most were so small I can't remember.   The things I didn't worry about, that caught me by surprise, I survived, and thrived.

Let me see.  I am 40, I have stretch marks and back fat.  But I also have nice legs and I can run and bike and hike ans swim with the best of them.

I have a wonderful husband who wished me "happy birthday on your day of birth in your birthday week".  I am blessed and I know it.

At 40 years old my Mom was dying and knew it.  She knew she wouldn't reach 45.  I hope that she hoped for it, but all the doctors said she wouldn't.  She died less than a month from her 43rd birthday. 

Thinking about it right now as I type, I can't imagine right now, facing what she faced.  Her hair was gone, her face and whole body were bloated …

In anticipation of my 40th birthday

These are just a few of the things I've learned...

Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it.

If my dogs don't like you, there's a good reason.

Wearing the right size bra makes all the difference.

I'm not as secure as I appear, and neither are other people.

Keyless entry remotes are very helpful in finding your car in a parking lot..honk and look.

Red wine makes me sweat.

If you can't say anything nice, come sit by me, I'll do my best to keep you out of trouble.

I am my own worst critic and the only one that matters.

If you think about someone far more than they think about you, you need to re-think your thinking!

And my own personal motto....
Pray like you mean it, Love like you mean it, so you can live like you mean it.
Later,
