50 something…

Today I am no longer 50, but 50 “something”!!

My 50th year has been an amazing one –

My son married and I gained a daughter-in-law!!

My daughter & son-in-law announced they were pregnant

with our first grandchild, a girl!

and I completed 5 half marathons!!!

Each one of these milestones has taught me

a little more about myself. You would think that

after 50 years you would know yourself rather well.

Notsomuch!!! That is one of the things I enjoy

about life; you never stop learning!!!

I’m sure I will continue to learn more about me!

I’m sure my family will continue to be blessed

with good health and good times ~

My ‘Ohana’ means more to me than

words can express and I continue to

be thankful for all of them and the

joys they bring me!!!

  1. Happy Birthday!
    I'm just 2 years older, and I find I'm still getting to know myself too: long may it continue.
    Congrats on the half-marathons! See, you're only a young one!


  2. Happy belated birthday, my dear friend! You've had a beautiful year – and you deserve all the best! You accomplished so much – you're definitely an inspiration for me to work harder with my running. I hope one day I'll be running one with you 🙂 xo


  3. Happy belated birthday! so many wonderful blessings during your 50th year :o) You have a beautiful family, with a sweet grandbaby girl to look forward to!
    And oh my!!! You are amazing to have completed 5 half marathons!!! Today is the Rock and Roll Marathon here in Savannah and I had a teeny weeny thought of at least “walking” the half…but…that thought didnt come to fruition! Our middle daughter is the runner and my hubby used to run quite a bit, especially in Iraq (um…yeah, I would ask him if that was really a safe thing to do at the time!)

    Hugs to you, my friend!!!
    Blessings & Aloha!
