Happy birthday Sharon!!
I can relate! I turned 40 back in July (yes, I'll be 41 soon). It was a hard birthday for me because I thought that that was the start of middle age (when is it?? I haven't a clue anymore ;)
I was so depressed the day before my birthday until I had the idea to play some of my favorite CDs. I ended up singing right up and into my birthday. Turning 40 felt quite alright after that. The music reminded me that living is living and if you can enjoy, it's not that bad at all.
I am celebrating you today Sharon! Not only because it's your birthday (although that's reason enough)- more though that you are such a great lady that you would do benefit concert on your birthday. Three cheers for you!!
