It was Andrew's birthday last week, he was 39.
It has hit me that we are nearly 40.
When did this happen?
I feel the same as I did in my 20's, so I am not sure when the time was so sneaky that I looked up and it was almost time for me to be 40.
I remember when I thought 30 year olds were.......OLD.
I revealed my thoughts to Andrew when we went to bed and lamented that I have got almost to 40 and have done nothing.
"I'm a wife and a Mum and all that, but remember when we were young ( and naive ) and we swore we were going to make a difference in the world? I wanted to make a difference to lives and change things I hated about the world, and I would polish my rose coloured glasses daily."
To this my husband said in his quiet manner, "Kell, you have changed MY world, made a difference, and made it so much better." Cue my self indulgent tears. Sometimes, he can be so............so..............sensitive?
Never underestimate the difference you can make in someone's life. I think sometimes the smallest acts are the most powerful. And for the record, he changed MY world and made it so much better.
I have a sneaking suspicion, that 40 will be my mid-life crisis. Watch here for the memo.
