They happen once a year no matter what!
My birthday is today and I'm proud to say I'm forty-one.
Most people are bothered by 40 or any year above that, but not me. I neither look 41, nor do I act 41. Youth is all in the heart and attitude, and it doesn't help that I have always looked very young for my age as well. So I enjoy watching people's reaction when they realize I am over thirty years of age!
My friends at Deviant Art (See links) have made the day special already and my husband will continue that with dinner and a party this weekend.
So here's to 41!!!!
