Last year in the 40s

Today marks the beginning of the last year of my 40s.  Yes, folks, I turn 49 today!  Hard to believe that I'm this old, and that 50, which at one time was a decade away, is now a mere 365 days.  Ed was kind enough to point out to me that I really am 50 this year, since he counts the 9 months in the womb!  He's five years younger than me and he never misses an opportunity to rub it in!

Over the weekend, I had to get some money from my bank ATM and on the screen was a birthday message from my bank, then this morning I open up Google and see this...

a birthday message just for ME from Google!  How cute!  I know its a totally automated response, but I still liked it!  Instead of wishing I were 10 years younger I've decided to embrace my present self and look forward to seeing what the future holds for me.  I'm blind without my glasses, my knees crack when I walk down the steps and I can't run as fast as I used to...but life is good!

Happy Happy Birthday!!!! And remember, you'll never be as young again as you are right now, so enjoy your youth.

I plan to! Guess you are as young as you feel, and right now I don't feel 49.
