Gwen of All My Seams has an excellent sense of timing. She bestowed upon me the Blogger Buddy Award today. Not only am I honoured and humbled by her kind gesture, but I can't help but think it's a pretty nifty birthday present too!
Today is my 39th birthday and all day long colleagues kept reminding me (in a good natured way) that next year will be the big 4-0. I think there is a misguided perception that women can't handle aging well. I actually don't mind getting older. I think for many woman, with age comes a greater self-awareness and contentment with oneself. I am now more comfortable in my skin than I ever was in my teens or twenties. So, I welcome each of my birthdays and as they say, it's better than the alternative!
