45 and feeling fine!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Wow, I can't believe I'm 45 years old. It's not that I feel that old. I thought I'd be more grown up at this point. Sometimes I look around and see my life and all the stuff I have and I think "Wow this is serious grown up stuff, and we got it all ourselves, nobody gave it to us". I say "us" because I've been with DH for 25 years, its always "us".
So I've been sitting on my patio, drinking coffee, checking out the wildlife in the pond, and thinking about where I've gotten to in my 45 years.
I'm pleased. I like my life.
We were set back about 10 years when I got sick in 1999. It wiped us out financially.
It was a really difficult time but we survived, got stronger.
I love living in Florida. Every day I am surrounded by beauty. It is uplifting, life is happy when you can appreciate what God created.

I'm a few weeks away from opening my online bookstore, which will be followed by opening a bricks and mortar store in about 3 months.

I love my husband, kids and my dog :)

Life is fantastic! I am blessed!

    Happy Birthday, Cheryl! Isn't it great to feel fine - I think it's great to get better and feel better as we age.
