Fifty!

Today I am fifty! I am thrilled to meet this milestone head on!

I thought I'd start out this new year with five things that are fabulous about being fifty!

1. Retirement looms close enough to see on the horizon
2. Grandchildren
3. Seeing our children grown into happy healthy productive members of society
4. Now I can act goofy and people excuse me for it! (there's a new "Grandma Dance" that happens in our home once in a while that you wouldn't believe!)
5. Did I mention Grandchildren?

#50 was the year my whole life began to change and wonderful things started to happen. I began an amazing journey with myself. I wouldn't have missed the last 15 years for anything!! My advice today is to look forward to an unbelievable adventure that's going to take place with the woman you were meant to be. Embrace the journey with gusto. Happy Birthday!!
