I Feel Special

Today I turned 40. I don't feel old or used-up or ugly or miserable. I feel lucky and loved. Phone calls, a sweet post from my sweet mom, presents, birthday cards, treats, emails, flowers, wishes from all corners have made me feel blessed.

Life is good and I'm just getting better at it.

Thanks, everybody.

Happy birthday from North Carolina! I wish we could have been together for your big day, but you sound like you are having way too much fun out in the desert! Hope things are going well. Sure I will get all the dirt when I get back to PA. Have a great day!

A new house does make a great birthday present no? (well, after all the unpacking is done I mean...)
I just turned 40 in april and I think that the kids really help us stay young, at least at heart!
Have a great day!

Happy, Happy Birthday, to our wonderful Gabi. Your mom's post was so lovely. I love what you said here. I shouldn't have been so whiny about turning 40. I am so blessed, too.

I love how you said, "Life is good and I'm getting better at it." So well said. I like the way you think. I am getting better at life, too.

Happy (late) birthday Gab!! I hope you enjoyed your special day. 40 is not so scary after all--really.

Your mom's post was beautiful!

I also hope things are going well for you as you get settled in your new home and surroundings.
