  3. Turning 40 is not like they say it is. From my own experience I feel no different than I did at 30,40,or 50. 5-26 marked my 60th birthday and my brain is still working as well as always. I will say with age comes a maturity that we settle into and enjoy life without inhibitions. We have the memories to look back on and enjoy life without all the garbage. PHG you will still be just as great when you turn 50 and 60. Yikes! don’t mean to scare you but it comes faster than we think. You will be as beautiful as you are now. What seems to happen along the way is the inner beauty shines through more so than the physical. I was a go getter with lightening speed up until an auto accident. Now I remain in granny gear with a mind my body can’t keep up with. But I keep on keeping on and that’s what counts. May you feel as great as you do now when you reach your next milestine birthday. An early Happy Birthday wish going your way.

    • Alice, This is the best comment I have ever received on a post. Your thoughts echo what I truly believe in life. I am not scared of 40, 50, o4 60 (now 70…just kidding.) My mom is an example of the old adage, “You are only as old as you feel.”

      Happy Belated Birthday to you! And thank you for all your wonderful comments. They always brighten my day.
