Getting Old

     This has been a month for confessions. Today's confession is.......I'm old!

Yesterday I turned 40! I'm not sure why but this has been a hard one! I don't feel like I should be this old. I feel like I have the ideas and the energy of a 25 year old. {But the wrinkles and the aches of someone older}

     I wouldn't change a thing however. I have an amazing husband who gets better with age, and 4 great kids. We have good friends and an ever so forgiving God who for some unknown reason has chosen to be so gracious to me! I am blessed!

     I work in a nursing home and my great {but so much younger} coworkers gifted me with everything I will need as I age: my own set of dentures, hearing aides, a cane, incontinent products, stool softeners, pill sorter,  and supportive undergarments. Where would I be without my friends! ;)

     The social worker in me has been doing a lot of life review this week. And I have to admit that each decade I age has gotten better and better. So I guess I should face the new decade in the face and embrace the journey that lies before me, because there's no going back!

My hubby surprised me by inviting our parents and a few friends over.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Happy Birthday Jody! I know what you mean... I'm 36 and feel like (and maybe sometimes act like) a 25 year old! Haha! But my body sure does remind me at times! Live it up!! Hope you had a great celebration.
