Well I woke up this morning to the realization that I'm now 50! How one is supposed to feel at 50 is a puzzle to me - I'm too young to be old, and too old to be young!
My heart has been heavy because my kids are both so far away, and weren't here to celebrate with me - as posted earlier, their gifts were priceless and invaluable, but I never imagined that I wouldn't have them with me at a time like this. No matter how old they are, they will always be my little girl and little boy, and it's just not the same when there's a birthday or Christmas to celebrate and they are absent.
Hope your week starts off wonderfully, and that you are blessed in every way.
