Turning 40

So I guess I never was afraid of turning forty. I have friends that thought it was the worst thing in the world. My Grandma was one of the youngest, coolest, hippest people I knew- they had a working dairy farm until they were 68- so there you go. Age is in your mind! She passed away this last year on Christmas day well into her 90s.

I think in my head I am like 33. I don’t know why that age- but I am. The girls think I am super old (as per Seanna). Emma told me I was still pretty for an older lady. That always makes you feel better.

I have the best friends around the world. I had a Birthday party in Africa- celebration dinner, heart shaped brownies etc. I have three friends that I email back and forth that are in the four corners of the world and they made my day amazing with a virtual party- homemade salsa and a game of pin the tail on the donkey.

I found my email box had 40 emails from another great couple- and I was so happy to read all of them!

At lunch I went to pick up My Pastor’s wife who had a surprise luncheon with some of the ladies from church-super nice! Then for dinner went out with My family, Steve, Penny, Zachary- an my Boss and his wife- Stephanie and Alan. We laughed until we cried- that is how I like it – fun, lively, and great food!

Thanks to all of you who made my day amazing. I am just sorry for being so slow 16 days behind in blog-world to express it. J

Love you all-

"Still pretty for an older lady". That is TOOOO funny! I just love that girl. I mean, you ARE still pretty, don't get me wrong. :) But I can totally hear her saying that. Heh
