I am thankful to wake up this morning. At least a third of those I graduated high school with didn’t do the same.
I am thankful for my head full of white hair as it shows I am experienced and wise – and a Mom!
I am thankful to have entered my 6th decade as to me it seems like my parents were so old when they were 60 but I don’t feel a day over 37…well maybe 38!
I am thankful for my very diverse group of friends and cherish every last little quirky thing we do.
I am thankful to have seen other places, other countries, other lifestyles and not living in a sheltered bubble!
I am thankful to have my husband of 25 years still trying to spoil me.
I am thankful to see my kids reach a point in their lives where they are standing on their own two feet (well most of the time) as I know I fostered independence.
So as I splurged on double the whipped cream in my coffee this morning and feasted on chocolate flan for breakfast, I entered a new decade of life and vow 60 will be my new 40!
Now, pass the Geritol, please.
