Life begins at...

...well, I think I get it. I've heard many cliche's and I think I understand most of them. Here is mine-
Life begins at 20, as a young adult afraid of nothing.
Life begins again at 30, and you recognize all the possibilities.
Life really begins at 40, when you finally realize what it is all worth!

*This was a combination gift- from my Mom. She sent me money for my 40th birthday (40 $1.00 bills) which I saved, wanting to do something with it that I would remember or could save.
Then she sent me money for mother's day (at almost 42 years of age) and I decided to put the two together to buy this pond swing. Because I now (think) I know the value of taking a few minutes out of my day to simply enjoy a peaceful moment with my family, How great is that! I'd like to attach a small quote on my swing. I may even have Scott burn it into the wood. I have some ideas but if you can think of any I'd love to hear them.

Oh, and Mom, Thanks!

Here's wishing you all a moment of peace in every one of your days too!
