and one more

post before I leave for the airport.  just in case- and just so I can keep myself in the 30 second rule. I got lucky in my 40s.  really lucky.  like lottery lucky in a way a lot of people never do.  first off I found a job I loved (well technically I found that in my late 30s but it really came into its own as a career when I was in my 40s) and then fate brought me Phil- my husband.

as all my friends and colleagues know, I am a very strong willed individual and not always easy going.  actually that might be a sizable understatement.  but I was blessed to meet a man who is so well suited to me and with whom I have shared the last fifteen years of my life.  we are about to celebrate our tenth anniversary and while of course not every moment of every day has been blissful LOL, we have a tremendous life together. 

so just so you know - I know I hit the lottery and I am blessed to love and be loved by this man.
