I'm going over the hill soon!

I have one day left to be forty something.  Then, on Friday I will go over the hill and welcome being 50 years old.  Doesn't seem right.  I don't feel fifty but on the same hand I feel much more in line with who I really am.  I am happy, satisfied with the person I am, content with life.  That is enough for me.

I've been missing blogging it just seems it has been non stop all summer and spring.  The weather here in Florida is beautiful.  It has been really dry but, we have been blessed with a few rainy days recently.  Of course we have been enjoying the beach and all she offers.  We've been picking blueberries and eating them everyday.   Dinner usually comes off the grill and the watermelon is sweet and peaches South!

I think I'll choose to accept turning 50 with open arms..I might as well right?  It's gonna be great!  Fifty is just a number...I keep my heart and mind open.  I look for... what I hope to find, and hope you do too!  Life is so much better that way.

I still feel small when I stand beside the ocean.

I hope you are all well.  Enjoy your summer, and remember to be kind to one another.   Hug someone just because you can. 

It's free.

  1. I am glad you are looking forward to 50.. When I turned 50 6 years ago, I must admit I was in shock.. I think just saying 50 was what did it.. lol... I solved it by buying a gorgeous diamond ring and it did make me feel better. A friend told me the following years will be easier and she was right...

  2. You look great! I slid over that hill 3 years ago. It ain't so bad!

  3. Hey you... from someone on 'this side' of that Hill... and what the two say above, come on over... the water's fine!

    It's good to see you!
