Being Forty is not a Sin*

To me-- old age is always ten years older than I am.

--John Burroughs

Yesterday I turned 40. The first birthday without my mom. Still I am grateful for all, I am still surrounded by lovely people. I have my healthy father, my beloved hubby and the girls, my brother, my sister, my in laws, and the whole nieces and nephew and last but not least, my best friends. There are lots to be grateful about. Instead of regretting what we don't have, it's better to focus upon what we have. God knows what the best for His mankind. Nothing to be doubted about.

Since Zea's birthday, 1st January was a holiday therefore we just celebrated her birthday at school yesterday.  I ordered several bentos for Zea's classmates. They turned out to be really cute. The yellow rice was set out as the Angry Bird's character. Thanks to Mbak Yanti for the bento. 

*Title is inspired by Golda Meir's quote, 'being seventy is not a sin'.
