The last week in my 30's

On Sunday I will be 40 years old.  Yes, the big 4-0!  It's hard to believe that I'm *gulp* that OLD!  Of course my children are having fun with it, teasing me that I'm ancient.  Some days I feel like a teenager inside, though my body is very much feeling its age.   I've decided that I'm not going to let myself get depressed about this milestone, rather embrace it.  I've decided to celebrate my age and I'm not ashamed to tell people my age. 

Some of the things I'm grateful for over the last 40 years:
  • My parents. We might not have agreed about everything as I grew up, but I'm thankful for your love.
  • My husband.  Your love and devotion mean everything to me.
  • My children.  Proof to me that God exists.  You are my miracles.
  • My friends.  Whether long time friends or a new friendship, IRL (in real life) or online, you mean a lot!
  • My health.  Although I have diabetes, it doesn't have me!  I am thankful that I have the health and stamina to enjoy life with my husband and children.
Most of all, I am thankful to be alive!
