50 24-50

"Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be a paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one." ~souza

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every moment with love, grace and gratitude"
~ unknown

It's hard to believe, but today is my birthday...not just any birthday, but my 50th! I know I must sound crazy, but I love saying that. I've had a great life (not perfect, not free from troubles) but it's been wonderful and I am thankful for every single moment.
I wanted to list the rest of the "50 things that I'm thankful for"...I'm doing these all together because I didn't have pictures to go along with many of them (and I couldn't do a post without a photo or two). I hope you've enjoyed counting down (or up to) 50 with me...thanks so much for being a part of my special celebration!
