In one half hour I will turn (cringe...>*<) 50! My dad passed at 49. I always had this odd feeling I'd die same age as him. This year of 49 has been a beacon-post all of my life. But, I guess the fretting was for naught. It's time to believe in my own beauty, ability, talent. It's time to rock this new decade of my life and make it the best! I'm healthy, have healthy kids, talent in my family and friends, projects begging for my attention, and best of all a youthful feel on the inside and look on the outside. I'm proud of me!! I can do anything!! I love my life and the people in it...especially those who have been a special inspiration to me...I thank you....
