In 22 days the first of my BFF’s turn 40. Chris was the first to drive, one of the first to get married and have babies, and the first to reach the milestone. I remember when Tami hit this point and was emotional and I guess I didn’t really get it. I am now here and struggling with the emotions that come with it. My kids are growing, I am aging, and the world keeps turning.
My mom is the same age Tami was when Tami got married. I am the same age my mom was when she took me to see Tears for Fears, and Miranda is the same age I was when I had my first kiss. I am blessed to experience this thing called life with the love of my life, an incredible family and wonderful friends. I am blessed that my mother has great genes and is still here to hold my hand when I need it.
Mortality is at my fingertips. My grandma died and was sad. My cousin Scott died at 35 and I cried. Thes wisest young person and friend Jan now has cancer and it has knocked me to the core. The world is moving fast and we are praying and fighting with you!
