40: A Milestone Come and...

I put down many thoughts for this blog and realized I sounded quite depressing. Yes, today is my birthday and yes, I am now 40. ~~Happy Birthday to me!~~

This birthday has hit me hard. Logically, I know there is absolutely no reason. I am no different today than I was yesterday, yet I, I suppose you say. I believe it's that I have to mentally wrap my head around this new number. In truth, I've not looked forward to this one. Birthday, that is. There were items on my infernal to -do list that I'd planned to have done or not done by this date. Oh well. C'est la vie!

As this day begins, however, I've decided I have to focus on the positives. That's what usually works to beat out the blues, right?

Let's see...I have my good health. I have a loving and supportive husband. I have a few amazing kids! *super proud Mom, here* I still have both my parents who can share in my birthday. I have terrific friends. And yes, I will be PUBLISHED in this amazing "40th" year. Really, who am I to complain?

So instead of moping about - which, with my family, would be an impossibility - I will do my best to liven up my day. I'll eat some cake and won't worry about the sugar. I'll decorate around the house, and most important, I will accept the love from my family and friends.

I hope your day goes as great and wonderful as I predict for mine!


  1. HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
