This morning began with a sleep-in, listening to the wind and rain. I love a good thunderstorm! The leaves from the maple trees were plastered against the windows.
Now the afternoon is balmy with blue skies, and the maple filters the sunlight.
Tonight I’ll celebrate with family and friends. Turning 50 isn’t so bad–and as both my husband and my father have reminded me, it beats the alternative!
I once turned fifty, a long time ago. When I did I was reminded of a saying that I have since realized to be true.
“At 40, you’re at the old age of youth….
At 50, you’re at the youth of old age”
So, so true..!!
PS.. (Belated) CONGRATULATIONS..!! 🙂
Thanks! I like that– being at the “youth of old age” works for me! 🙂
