Forty years ago today I was born at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. There is so much hype about turning forty that I have been thinking about it for the past few days. Many of the things said about being forty are negative. I don't feel like I am over the hill, or that I am on the down hill slide. Just the opposite. In many ways I feel like life is just beginning.
I am grateful for all forty of my years on earth. Oh, there are many things said and done that at times I wish had turned out different. If that were the case though I wouldn't be where I am today and that is a very good place! My heart is overflowing with love for God, my wonderful husband, the daughter that I prayed and prayed for, my parents, sister and nieces, my home and life in general. No, things are not perfect. They never are, but through it all God is good!
My thirties were wonderful and I look forward to seeing how fabulous my forties will be!
