Quotes From Canada {My Birthday}

51019

Today I turn 40! And Margaret Atwood provides the perfect quote to how I feel most of the time.

Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.

Does anyone else ever feel this way?OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

      Thanks, Cathy! The picture is actually a couple of years old. I had trouble finding one that wasn’t fuzzy, but the picture for this year hasn’t been taken yet. πŸ™‚

    Happy birthday! I just did the 40 thing myself (apparently June of 1974 was a special year), and some variation of that Atwood quote has been running through my head throughout the experience. – Kirt

      You’re the first person to say that. It’s good that we don’t all feel that way- we need some real adults around, too! You can be one of them. πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday, Naomi! You are still so young, but it does sneak up on you. I do sometimes feel like a kid in grownups’ clothing, except that mostly I don’t usually dress like a grownup. There are certain life events that force you to grow up fast–such as becoming a parent, or losing one. But loving what you are doing–living in the moment–can turn anyone into a wide-eyed kid again. I have a feeling you are that kind of person. May it always be so!
    Warmly,
    Naomi

    Happy belated 40th, Naomi! That is a big deal! I love your idea of observing your b-day with a literary quote!

    Alas, I have never felt like a kid! But having a child and a husband who is a often a child-at-heart is giving me that second chance πŸ™‚ I hope your year is filled with more books and wonder!
