On Thursday April 24, 2008 I turned 50. I actually think it's pretty cool being 50. I just don't know how it happened so fast! I got my AARP packet in the mail a couple of weeks ago....that was a surreal experience.
So anyway....being 50.....it feels like one of those times in life when you pass through a doorway. It's a one way door. There's no going back, only forward. It's exciting and scary at the same time. That's how this feels. I don't know exactly what the next leg of this journey will hold for me. The last 50 years have been quite a ride! If that's any indication of what the next few years are going to be like I think I'll fasten my seatbelt and hold on! Or maybe just hold my arms up in the air and scream....instructions from Lil Miss Autumn on the proper way to ride a rollercoaster...."You just hold your arms up in the air and scream when it's a little bit scary Grandma"
