When I was little my l’s sounded like y’s and I sometimes felt the need to point out the “old yadies” I saw to my mom, very loudly. Well just one week ago today I turned 40, wondering if that makes me the old yady now. Ha ha.
It was a beautiful celebration and continued for many days afterwards with visits, presents, dinners, chats and lunches. I still have much to do in this life and with this birthday I felt a renewing of sorts, entering a new decade is a little exciting. I am itching to try some things artistically and take care of myself to make the next 40 plus years just as good, I have an even stronger desire to make each moment count and be with the ones I love and love me so dearly.
It is strange and unknown territory to leave your 30’s, most definitely a beginning and not an end. In recent months with my sister Kadee moving across the states and seeing a dear friend almost lose her daughter who was in perfect health just days before, you don’t find yourself worried about a number, instead I find myself grateful for this day. I was spoiled on this birthday and loved every second of it.
