The Big 4-O

Today was my birthday.  Also my hubby’s birthday but he’s only 39 so this was “the big one” for me.  LOL!  Why does everyone get so freaked about 40?  It’s just a number, much like age is only a state of mind and in my mind I still feel young.  I would hate to be in my 20’s again.  I feel like I didn’t blossom until my mid 30’s.  Does that sound silly?   Does this mean now that I am officially 40 that I have to grow up? 

 I read an article the other day that said studies have shown the older you are, the happier you are in general with your life.  I totally agree with that.  It stated that older people found joy in the simpler things in life.  Now I know they were referring to people in the late 60’s but I can relate that to my life.  I get so excited to see a rose bloom on my rose bush or have a dove build a nest and hatch her eggs on my patio.  My husband will call me to the window to see a beautiful red bird playing in our yard and that makes me smile like a loon lol. 

I love my life!  I am happy with what I’ve learned in 40 years and I look forward to 40 more.
