Why Me? Why Now?

I'd like to think that all of us gain a certain amount of wisdom over time. I'm a woman who just turned 50, and I think that's a good time to reflect on what I've learned as a woman, as a wife, and as a mother. I don't necessarily think that the lessons I've learned, or the opinions I have, are any more or less valuable than those of any other woman. Wouldn't it be great though, if we could all share those life lessons with one another? I can't think of a better way to continue growing and learning.
I enjoy writing, but it's much easier for me to type, so. . .this is kind of my on-line journal. I'll be blogging about whatever topics I feel the need to express. I hope by doing this, it will enable me to look back at where I've come from and look forward to where I'm going, as I enter the "the other side of 50". I hope too, that it will allow my children to gain insight into who I am (besides just "Mom")and why my opinions are what they are--that is, of course, if they're ever so inclined--but that's a whole other story!
