Knock Knock


Today 40 came knocking at my door.  Last week, I would have refused to answer.  Heck, yesterday I would have refused to answer the door.  Then I woke up this morning and it was a beautiful morning.  I metaphorically swung that door open and invited 40 in for a cup of coffee.  We sat, we chatted.  I like her.  Besides, I know that 27 will drop in every now and then to say hi.  Heck, I am reminded of her every time I see my rear in the mirror (which isn't that afternoon).  Not that I still have my 27 year old rear end but I do still have the tattoo of a crescent moon on my butt.  Yes, that's right, a moon on my rear.  Unfortunately, I did not realize the irony of this until after the tattoo was done.

I raise my glass to you forty.

  15. Happy Birthday Tara! I have settled into the 40s. More wisdom, worry a little less about certain things. Not bad at all. That story about your tattoo is too funny.

  17. Tara!!! A very belated 40th birthday, I'm sorry that I missed it while I was away. This post brought tears to my eyes and made me miss you. I'll continue to read your blogs but for now I think I just need to sit back and listen to some Blue Rodeo and reminisce. Your blog is wonderful - thanks for sharing it with me.
