This Sunday, I will turn 50.
A couple of weeks ago, I was going down the rabbit hole of links on the computer and found myself at BHLDN. It's the wedding site associated with Anthropologie. I clicked on the sale tab and here were the most beautiful candle holders on clearance for $2 a piece. I thought, hmm...who could I buy one for and then saw that the only numbers left were 0, 4, & 5. Well, that left out my kids. Granddaughter for coming years? And, then it hit me, 50! Me, I could buy them for me.
And, I did.
Click, click, click, they were bought and on their way without me second guessing myself.
So, they've been sitting out for me to enjoy and contemplate this milestone birthday.
I'm not sure I have anything profound to say about it except that I'm grateful. So very grateful for e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g in my life. And, I'm happy to be celebrating another birthday.
A dear friend told me that I will never feel any older in my mind than I do now and I believe that is true.
How about you? Any thoughts on growing older?
