is my birthday, I have turned 40. Wow!!! I've been feeling pretty down about this number for a month or so and I didn't really understand why.

I woke up this morning with a different attitude, I should be so lucky to age and see how far I've come in this life.

I have had friends that never made it to 40, I'm sure they would have loved to celebrate this day but instead their lives were cut short.

I have 3 amazing, beautiful, healthy children and a wonderful husband who would do anything for me.

We live in a lovely town surrounded by friends and family and I am so blessed to live the life I live.

So, the feeling of 'OMG I'm so old' is no longer, instead I say 'bring it on'.


  1. Happy birthday Sue! Cyber hugs from Rose

  2. Happy Birthday, Sue!! I felt like that when I turned 40 last year, now I have the same attitude as you.
    Bring it on!!

  3. Happy Birthday Sue. :-) Hope you have a great day!!

  4. I feel very blessed to be healthy and happy at 46 year old. My knees creak and my shoulder gives me a bit of curry now and then but yep, I have my family around me, they are all well and life is so very good. Get out and enjoy it, I say!

    Cheers - Joolz

  5. Happy belated Birthday, Sue! And good for you... embrace life, and all that it entails. (It sure beats the alternative!) Blessings to you!
