The Big 4-0

Well. It happened. I turned 40 yesterday. I admit, this has been a tough one for me. 40. It sounds so old.

It seems like such a short time ago that I was in high school, then college, then a single mom of 2 small girls.. Where did all the time go? I try to think back on those years and so many of them are a blur. I think about the dreams I had as a child. So many left unrealized, as is the case with most childhood dreams.

My life path has not always been easy, but it is these challenges I have overcome that have made me who I am today. I like who I am today. I have a great husband, two fantastic daughters, a comfortable home, and a family and friends who love me.

I am 40. I wonder what my next 40 years will bring?


  1. Happy belate birthday, Staci! Had I known we could have met for an ice cream!!!
    Hope you had a great day (I'm closing in on 40 myself)..

  2. Happy belated birthday from me too! I like my 40's better than all my previous years so don't fret, things are just getting better!
