And so it begins...

I turned 50 years old this year and I have to say, it was a bit of a shock.  When 40 rolled around, I was unaffected. It wasn't a number that bothered me or gave me any cause for concern, but 50, well, that's another story.  I've always thought it doesn't matter how old you are, we should be grateful for where we are and I am...except when I realize that I there are a lot of things I've wanted to do and have never done.  I've lived a good life so far.  I have been married to my amazing husband for 28 years and we have been blessed with 5 wonderful sons.  The thing is my "boys" are mostly grown.  My 4th son graduated high school in June and only my youngest will return in the fall.  It makes me wonder what now?  What will this new chapter in my life bring?  What is life like at 50?  My grown sons have suggested to me for some time that I start a blog about something, about anything and at first I dismissed it.  I don't know how to blog.  What would I write about?  Who would read it?  What if no one reads it?  But lately, I have realized that as I get older, I am letting my doubts and fears stop me from even trying new things, so I decided to start a blog.  I'm not sure yet what being 50 will mean.  But I plan on figuring it out.
