The Big 3-9

I am officially 39 today (and yes, I really am - this will be the only year I will be this age). In honor of this day, I wanted to share from a magazine interview. My friend LM, knowing that I'm an Anglophile, sent some pages from More magazine. (a new magazine for women over age 40) They had interviewed Emma Thompson (one of my faves). She said these words about aging,

"It's just lovely getting older. You know, I don't worry so much about myself really. I feel as though now there is no time for any of that, there's no time to kvetch about who you are, what you mean. That sort of self-doubt belongs to when you're younger."

Although I'm not as old as you are Rio, I can say that part of the fun of aging has been realizing that life is like a fine piece of dark chocolate...every morsel should be savored. ENJOY!!!

Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry I missed it! I was stuck in the grocery store trying to figure out which package was fish and which one was chicken!
