I Am Now Happy To Turn 40

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support

    40

    I wasn't sure about this whole 40 thing.  I posted a question to the answer board and got some great feedback to my concerns.  Thanks to everyone who encouraged me and said 40 is great!!  To the guy who says only death is next...LOL!!!  OMG that made me laugh...
