Today I celebrate my forty-second birthday. This is significant as my mother died at this age. And so this age has been ingrained in my brain. I dreaded its arrival while at the same time I couldn’t wait to move beyond this number as in a weird way, I felt like I needed to reach this age before life could really begin. So can’t wait for it all to happen. While things have progressed, on the personal front (dating/relationships/family), they have also been at a standstill for the last decade or so. Shame really. But hey, no time like the present to carpe diem. So LORD whatever is in store, know that I am ready. FINALLY!
