I celebrated a birthday last week. I guess turning 40 is a big deal....although I don't feel any different. I don't feel older, or wiser and I don't feel like a hit some great milestone. I eased into 40 just like it was any other day!
Flowers were delivered in lieu of my husbands presence and later a party from my dearest friends to commemorate this glorious new decade I was entering!
I guess if I learned anything from the whole day and the last 40 years, it is to appreciate everything you have, to give all you can and to love deep and unhindered...to find joy in the little things and to laugh! Here is my list of those moments this past week.
