Today is my birthday :)

Today I'm turning 40.

It was supposed to be the most special day of my life but a series of events is making it a little hard day. I'm so sorry for having to say this, but this blog has always been my platform for being honest with you in the good and bad times as well. Life is not always the way you expect it to be. My Mom had a bad fall and broke her arm and foot, she's into a lot of pain getting ready for the next step that could include surgery. We have a big problem in the kitchen, right now there is a man fixing it and making lots of noise and charging lots of money. There are other things going on as well, but they're smaller.

Fortunately, I have my mind that never leaves me alone in a bad day. My mind is reminding me that with a little bit of imagination we could turn things around. Maybe I could move my real birthday celebration to another day or month this year. I have a whole year for being 40. But regardless of everything that's going on today I still feel very lucky to be alive. Lots of love!

My Mother in Law just sent me this great card!

It made my day :)

Thanks a lot Joan!

I love you too :)
