Well, It is that time for me.....

I am a bit anxious about this week ending.

Because on Friday, my 30s will end as well.

I have so many thoughts about turning 40. What about you? How do you feel about age? Just a number? I do feel very young at heart. I suppose being 40 with a 4 year old requires that?

There are several things in my life I would change, but for the most part, everything that has happened, both positive and negative, has been for a reason.

A plan that I didn't know existed was unfolding perfectly, or imperfectly....

I am thinking very deeply about some things and at the same time, pulling up memories and friends and times from my past that make me smile.

I am basking in the joys of my life and contemplating the things that need work. And am seeking God's help and wisdom in knowing the difference.

I am throwing myself a real girls' party to reunite friends from my past in several weekends.

But in the meantime, I am thinking how I can make my life better and what I can do to keep my life on track for the master plan for then next 40 years.

I am not making a bucket list, but I am thinking and praying and counting my many blessings.

So, send me your birthday wishes and advice on living life to the fullest, no regrets!

And feel free to email me with a postal address for all gifts.
