10 reasons I love 40

Wow! I am 40 years old today and I am loving it!

1. I am more content.

2. I have four wonderful boys.

3. Being 40 means I have been married for almost 20 years to the awesome Timbo.

4. I am learning to accept the gray hair I have.

5. I am still younger than my brother. :-)

6. If our future follows our past then we will live in another 10 states in the next 20 years. I like moving.

7. I have an awesome accountability partner.

8. I can actually appreciate being more mature than I was at 20, 30 or even 39.

9. I actually remember when Al Gore created the Internet and I appreciate him doing so.

10. God has been gracious to me and I realize that more and more every day.

Turning 40 is a gift. I've enjoyed everything that comes with it except for the jiggly thighs.

Blessings on your head and heart -

I'm catching up on blogs so I'm behind in wishing you a happy birthday on your blog, but I'm hoping my birthday wishes to you via Timbo's Twitter account (what happened to yours?!) will suffice!

I hope you had a great day and that this is your best year yet!

Thanks Amy! I did see the message from you. I still have a twitter account, I am just not very good at checking there very often.

Hi Robin,
Thanks for your comment and especially for your prayer!
What point are you at in the process?

Liv, we just started the process. I am working on the original application to YWAM, so we are ultimate newbies.
