Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be...
~ Robert Browning
My thoughts on turning 38 are decidedly optimistic.
Why, you ask?
Because if you dwell on the downsides of aging you drive yourself crazy. You end up in the fetal position obsessing about what you've done with your life. I am choosing to look at the positive things about being a mere 730 days away from 40, and they are many. My dad always said that every day above ground is a good day. I think I'll go with that.
My birthday celebrations were fabulous. Steve and I went out, just the two of us, and we also had a little party with the kids. (I did something I've never done before, I made my own birthday cake. Pineapple UpsideDown to be exact, it was delicious) My birthday was filled with lots of love from family and friends, I am a lucky girl.
You can't have a birthday without presents,(you could but it would just be sad) and my birthday was all about shiny, silver baubles. I told you I was lucky.
