Birthdays, as a rule, don’t really bother me. This year, however, this year was the big 4-0. For some reason, this birthday grabbed me by the throat and held me to the wall…..i just couldn’t grasp the thought of actually being 40 years old. I wish I could find the words on how being 40 makes me feel. Maybe like I should of accomplished more…like 40 is a deadline or something. I don’t know. Anyways, through all my mental anguish of turning 40 (which, in reality is just like any other day–duh!) I really did have a wonderful day.
I took the day off from the day job and done a whole lot of nothing. My family didn’t plan anything for my birthday so my girlfriends decided to meet me at a local watering hole for a couple drinks. Quite honestly, woman are so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by friends. (I think without them we would loose our minds). My besties brought me cake, balloons, a purple boa, and a tiara PLUS gifts!! They helped make my birthday so much more bearable. The cake had the lovely wording “Welcome to our world—40″ I had an amazing evening–thank you ladies. You have definitely made a huge deposit into your Karma bank. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have you in my life.
