Celebrating 40 Candles

I am once again...

so grateful
so thankful

to have had the blessed opportunity to celebrate

another vacation
another birthday
another year

of God's grace and goodness to me

Goodbye 39...

Hello 40!

And this year I decided to

go big
party hard
withhold nothing

(and there's a good possibility that there is some video footage floating around out there to prove it!)

Aruba! Aruba!
because 40 years have taught me that life is

unpredictable
uncertain
unwilling

to slow down for us

while we try to figure it out

and no day can be reclaimed
once it has passed

And so instead of

fretting
fighting
fearing

what is next
we should wholeheartedly embrace it

by intentionally celebrating...

what is now
