Until now, I never...
Turned 47


Yipes!  How can this be?  Have I really been on this planet for 47 years?  I can remember being at the dinner table with my family back when I was in middle school, talking about the year 2000.  How crazy that was going to be!  I would be 34, which seemed impossibly old.  I would have a law degree from Harvard, an incredibly handsome husband, and be very very rich.

Well the year 2000 was nearly 14 years ago, and things didn’t exactly work out as planned, except for the husband part.  But I have had a remarkable 47 years, and I am very grateful for all that I have experienced, and all that I have.  I don’t feel old, because I’m not.  I’m pretty sure that this is just the half-way point.
