and for my 50th
The past 2 years have been overwhelming. So many things have happened I could write a country song and never make a word of it up!
I lost a few really close friends (due to arguements, not death!). I had a serious health scare (ovarian cancer). My dad fell on his 82nd birthday and died a couple days later. My 22 year marriage ended up in scattered little bits of used toilet paper ( I apologize for the visual). We lost our home and our beloved Moo died.
With the exception of death, I can look back and smile now and see the good that came from the rest of it all.
The “friends” really weren’t. I am NOT going to die….of that anyway. I am finally free of a really bad marriage (officially…soon) but gained an incredibly loving and supportive boyfriend. We lost the house but live in a darling apartment with pool/jacuzzi/health club etc. We adopted Poo, a one-eyed chiuahua.
So this birthday felt special. And seeing as how it was my 50th, i needed to do something to honor all the changes. Not just for me but changes for David and Hannah too. We have all learned and grown in a huge number of ways. We have transitioned into newer, stronger, smarter versions of ourselves. We are flying on a new path now. And so, there was really only one fitting tribute I could make:
