Mum's birthday is coming up next month, and she's getting older! Remind you, she's not that old yet, but it's just close enough that she thinks about the big numbers sometimes.
Hopefully it's true that 40 is the new 20 and 50 is the new 30, she'd like that. She has told me though that she wouldn't want to go back to 20 or 30 for any reason, whatsoever! She likes her life now, has much more experience, and thinks a lot differently about life than she did when she was 30. Risk? We'll take it. Fear, not in our vocabulary. Wherever life takes us, is where we want to go; but hopefully the direction would take advantage of our talents!
She does look in the mirror now and then, and isn't that happy about the age thing showing more and more on her. Lots of people think about doing some stuff and having Beverly Hills plastic surgery done. It may be for some folks, but not for my Mum. I like her just as she is.
