I had a birthday

I can't believe another year has whizzed by and suddenly I am a year older. It has been a bumpy year in many respects but it has also been a year of tremendous personal growth. Maybe life really does begin at, Shhh don't say it too loud, the youngest child still thinks I'm 21, forty. I feel more settled and sure of myself than I have for a long time. I know what I want for the rest of my life and can look back and see where I've made certain choices and the the consequences I've had to live with and I can accept these decisions have made me who I am.
The next year is shaping up to be pretty good.
