Fifty!! I can't remember being so excited about a birthday. It really is fantastic. Now the next half century begins.....
My siblings put on a fantastic cottage birthday party for me this weekend, with a great many wonderful friends and family. Monday, my actual birthday 'day', I got to spend with my own three kids, just us, in our own little piece of heaven in Georgian Bay.
Three great kids, all healthy, happy, and good people; a wonderful family of my mum, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews (a bunch of us had a great time together 'til the wee hours Sat. night :-) ); so many friends and colleagues for whom I have such respect and affection; and a job--a calling--that I absolutely love.
Oh yes, and a new puppy in the family!
I am incredibly fortunate that the past 50 have brought me to this place in my life.
Thank you to everyone who is sending in birthday wishes!! They all mean a great deal to me--thank you so much.
