Today officially begins my 50th year. How do I feel? Pretty awesome! We haven't had rain for weeks and today it's pouring. It feels refreshing and renewing. Yes, I love rain. I miss the lightning and thunder of the Midwest but I love the way it cleans the air and makes everything green. I love that clean smell that wafts through my windows.
As far as my birthday goes, lights didn't flash, the earth didn't shake, nor do I feel different. I am a little bit amazed that I have arrived at this point in my life. When you're young you think that fifty is soooo old. I don't feel sooo old just a little rough around the edges with a few more aches and pains.
I want to thank everyone that has helped me and supported me all these years and shaped me to who I am today. I am grateful for the gift of each day and look forward to many more!
P.S. For three days I get to be a cougar, my husband will still be 49 until Friday. Grrrrr!
