My life changed after I turned 50.  My idea’s about happiness changed too.  Yes, I know that 50 seems a little late for change, but that’s what makes life exciting.  Isn’t it?

As I turned 50, my first son, Julian, was born.  And just as I was adjusting to one, along came Aidan, my second son.

You know what they say about things coming in threes?  Well, it’s not always about dying.  That’s right, Quinn Tessa, my bouncing 3 year old princess came along too!

Now, as I turn 60, my life and happiness is inextricably intertwined with the lives of three more.  Three more human beings filled with insatiably curiosity about life, and boundless energy which challenges our 60 year old minds and bodies each day.

And I wouldn’t change a thing!

You see, I learned a very important lesson after age 50.  Taught to me by 3 young souls who didn’t know they were doing it.

What they taught me is this: Unconditional love and happiness are the same thing.  You can’t have one without the other.  And in the end, the love and happiness you take, is equal to the love you make.
