A Happy 40th to you whenever that might be. Monday I will have #81. Take my word for it: "the older you get, the faster time slips by"!

Dear Heart, wait till you're looking at 73 (me this fall) and then ask yourself the same question.  There's others here, older than I am.  I'm sure they ask the same thing!!

Accept it and don't worry about it. Time marches on.

I remember the summer I turned 40.  I was living out in CA.

 

My father - and his great sense of humor - for my birthday, sent me a kit to make a dollhouse.

I'm going to be 70 soon andI mentally I don't feel anywhere close to that. My body definitely looks and feels my age but inside I feel much younger. I think your attitude is what's important. Enjoy your day!

My mom always told me you will always be that young girl in your head and she was so right. I will be 65 this year and it’s  all good. I love my birthdays and at 40, I bet you are just growing into yourself. It does get better in my opinion...enjoy your 40th this summer!

Happy early Birthday to you, @Mellie32. I am almost 52. I don't know where the time has gone either, and I wish I could get some of it back.
