It's official, I'm 48. 

It's such an odd feeling! 

As a child I thought a 48 year old person was... errhhhh... old... and probably a grandma...

As the years have passed this feeling has been continuosly changing and now I totally understand my 94 year old Grandma when she talked about that "old lady" at the nursing home who was 70... 

Age is definitely in our mind and in our heart, not in the years that have gone by. 

I am not a grandma (thank goodness!!! my son is still too young for that!) and I definitely don't feel or behave old :)

And I am so happy to be 48 and alive and well! 

I am such a lucky person, my health is back, my family is big and we all care for each other, I have a job I like (even though I'll need to relearn when I go back, I've been away for so long) and I appreciate all of life's gifts and beauty... and I have met so many wonderful people here!

So... here's a little gift from me to you, and a big THANK YOU for all your support through rough times these past few months!

It wouldn't be the same without you :)

    I wish US ALL many happy hooking days together and all the health in the world! :)

  10. As someone told me, the definition of "old" changes as we age and unless the person is more than 10 years older than us, they CANNOT be deemed to be old. LOL And compared to ME, you're a BABY! Congrats on your birthday. I believe it's the Chinese that look upon every birthday as cause for celebration of having lived another year...and the more celebrations you have under your belt, the better! Hugs, Annette


It's always great to read your comments! :) Thank you!
