I’ve decided to let the anxiety go. Rather, there are so many positive things to think about. I consider the various close calls I’ve had in life, yet here I am. I am a mother to two fine youngsters. A mother! It was my life’s dream, and it came true for me. I have a small circle of friends, dear and well loved. Untold wealth! I have a profession, as much of a head scratcher as that may be. I provide well for my family and our needs are met. We live in a beautiful, peaceful place, surrounded by trees. We have everything that we could possibly need. I have the particular love of a good and fine man. I am especially blessed at this time in my life. I have more vigor and hope and joy now than I’ve ever had before.
So this is what I have to say about turning fifty.
