So many do not make it to fifty. I can't say I know the reason, but I trust the One who decides.
Turning 50 was a big deal to me. It is at this point in my life I know that most of my days are behind me, but I am determined to make the ones ahead count. I am not ready to retire from anything. Actually, I am ready to live like never before. I want to be 'all in' for Christ. I want to try new things. I want to broaden my perspectives so I can have even more to offer.
My dad died at 45 an my son at 30. I count everyday as joy.
