Here we are, the BIG 4 0.
I was out to dinner the other night with girlfriends and they asked me if any wisdom had arrived with this life anniversary. I can’t say that I have gained any brain cells, but I have come to a few realizations.
You see, I have had a rich life.
I have lived in beautiful homes.
I have traveled far and wide.
I have run marathons, stood atop mountains, and dipped my toes in oceans, seas, rivers and lakes.
I posses gold and silver, diamonds and pearls.
I have eaten exotic foods and sipped champagne.
There are awards and degrees with my name on them.
But when it comes down to it, none of it matters more than the people with whom I have shared those experiences. What is truly, most important? LOVE. And I am blessed beyond measure when it comes to family and friends.
Time on this Earth is short.
Health is fragile.
I will celebrate this milestone of 40 by cherishing the people in my life who have stuck around all these years.
The Fabulous Forty Birthday Tour started this week in TX and AR, with many more locations to be announced in the next 12 months.
Friendship and time are precious gifts, I thank you for sharing them with me.
It is a very happy birthday.
