Forty::Day 9

Dory 1ATomorrow our twins turn forty. 4-0.

I remember them being three. 3. Wasn’t it just a few years ago? Both singing, “Jesus love me, this I know, cuz the Bible tells me so.” One grumbling that if she had to wait to have a life before she got the things she wanted, then she “didn’t want a life.”

Sharing their own take on the English language. Finishing each other’s sentences. Synchronized speaking when excited.

Now they are married with children and taking their birthday on the road to New Orleans for the weekend.

It doesn’t seem so long ago that I was forty.

Hell, it doesn’t seem so long ago that I was in high school.

But, honey, oh, it has been a long time for both. A very long time.

Wait, what?

I saw forty! It went that a way!

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. Just keep swimming…

Celebrated everything, friend.
