Today I turn forty. I have been dreading this moment for a few months now. It is silly, really, when you think about it. It’s not like it was a surprise; I knew this day would come — if I was lucky enough to live until now. And here we are.

I have so many, many things to be grateful for; I count my blessings every morning. It’s just… forty. You know, F O R T Y. I am too small to turn forty. I feel too young to turn forty. But maybe that’s the trick, the secret no one…
