“Getting older is a blessing that not everyone gets to do.  It’s not a given.  It’s a privilege.”
– C. Diaz

Flowers arrived for me this afternoon from Sideroad Farm, one of my favourite famers at the Collingwood Farmers Market.  They were ordered as a surprise for me from my lovely husband.  I didn’t even know that they delivered flowers!!  Such a special treat to celebrate getting older.

Many of you know that I am turning 50 and tomorrow is the big day.  I realize it is just another number and I am so very fortunate to have my health and a beautiful family to celebrate with me.  I am also very fortunate to have found all of you who are constantly showing up to class and giving me such wonderful role models on life and active ageing.
