40 Something

Just a few things I really didn't appreciate until my 40's....................

My family history, I could have really cared less on who I came from or where I came from but now I appreciate my family history. It's very cool to trace my "ROOTS" all the way back to Ireland and Whales. My Mom was able to trace our family immigration to the new country just before the time of the French and Indian War in America, which is only a few years later than the whole plymouth rock thingy! lol

Bob Segar and Lynard Skynard.......I didn't care for that style of Rock until now.......Music is the best way to time travel. Now when I here a certain song on the radio I am immediately be transported back in time. I think music is the one thing that I truly could not live without.

A slow hand............'nuff said! lol ;)

The fact that my babies aren't babies anymore.......Don't get me wrong I am sooooo looking forward to the time I can spend with my future grandbabies, but I am sooooo done with the baby stage right now. My baby will be 14 this month and I can't even look at a baby or a toddler right now without thinking, "Thank GOD that isn't one of mine!"

Soft Lighting.........'nuff said! lol ;)

Time spent alone...........doing nothing and enjoying it!

A motorcycle ride......Nothing better than the wind in your hair and the sun on your face while holding on to your one true love!

A beautful sunrise more so than a sunset, because that means I was lucky enough to live just one more day!

I'm sure I could come up with at least a hundred more, but these would have at least been on the top of my list right now!

Life is good and I am thankful!

I agree with your entry though hopefully I don't have to wait til I am 40 to appreciate those things.

I also like the way music can take you back in time.. I love to listen to some "oldies" as my future step kids would say however.. they aren't all that old.. well maybe not to me anyway! lol* Mel

I totally agree with you about the's amazing how the memories come flooding back when you hear certain songs.  I've become addicted to my Ipod....can't imagine how I survived all those years before it was invented! (ha)  Love riding the motorcycle with the hubby too, although it drives my Mom crazy.....guess you never get too old to be a "baby" to your Mom, huh?  And yes, you will LOVE having Grandbabies some day, I cannot imagine my life without my three!

Take Care,

What a great entry!!  I really enjoyed this!!!  We have a very similar family history too.  It's great to be Irish and English.  We've got a touch of Scotch and German also.  So every now and again the red hair and blue eyes and freckles show up.  And even more now that I've married a very Scotch Irish German husband.  Lol.  Hugs,
