I am still on the slippery slope, now nearing fifty, and I am finally fully understand the importance of great friendship, catering services, and sushi.
However, I do realize some would say that 50 is the new 40. At 48 years old I Have figured out that the real cars and trucks out there are from my era.
Through this meandering journey, I would like to think that it has meant something. Consider this a warning of sorts. I am someone special to those I impacted.

I still HAVE NEVER found a buried treasure, and for that matter, I have never buried a treasure, nor have I even looked if I’m being honest.
I have never survived for days in the hottest of deserts with no food or water.
I have never won the lottery, flown a plane, or been struck by lightning.
I have never received electric shock therapy or been cured by a plant found only in the deepest depths of some remote rainforest.
I have never swam across the ocean blue to some unforeseen destination plagued by man eating sharks and lived to tell about it. Although my paradise has become Cabo whenever possible.
I have never won an eating contest, been buried alive or made my debut in a Broadway play.
I have never made it to the end of a rainbow. I have never knitted a sweater or a scarf for that matter.
(Dang, what a loser, since I’m now reading and updating this from our 20 year and I still haven’t hit these milestones)

In my years on this earth,
I HAVE danced in the rain, laid in the dirt, and sat in the sunshine with my toes in the sand.
I have been disappointed, and I know I have disappointed.
I have now seen the sun set on the other side of the world.
I have laughed until I cried and cried until I laughed.
I have had my breath taken away, my heart stolen, and my soul rescued.
I have lost myself, and found myself, only to lose myself again.
I have surrendered myself to the idea of being truly insignificant, but yet significance is over rated.
I have woke up laughing.
I have given myself up to happiness and have chosen to smile everyday.
I have met some of the most amazing people imaginable; I have imagined my life without them and been truly grateful for them.
I have felt like my heart was actually breaking. I have seen someone's actually break, I have openly admitted that sometimes "sorry" is all a person can offer and I have learned that most of the time a "sorry" is enough.
I have learned that "being" means more than "doing".
I have been overcome by the brilliance of children.
I have had my heartstrings pulled to the brink when I choose to move away from my family and the only place I have ever called home to leave my mark in this world.
I have been dumbfounded by people's resilience, passion, and relentless desire to overcome.
I have been more lonely than I ever thought possible.
I have become comfortable in my own skin. I have been happier than I have ever imagined.
At 48, I can honestly tell you, life is good and, I would not trade any of my adventures for anything.

School Story:

By far, I think the best of times was the trips to the mountain. Both on the skibus and with the guys. Those almost near death experiences when we thought we were going to hit oncoming cars, busses, and snowplows.....That little brown Datsun of Teddy's really served us well.
