the tears
Written by LaurelLaurel Palladino
Hello Fifty……..
Fifty, not looking back just keep moving forward. The best is yet to come.

I will be 50 in a week. That’s half a century, five decades, roughly 18,250 days give or take a leap year, that’s a lot of life. For the most part,  I think I am ok with being 50. I don’t feel 50, not sure I look 50(if you have another opinion keep it to yourself), and most days I don’t act 50. But still 50!!  I am blessed beyond measure. I have been married almost 29 years to my best friend and love of my life, I have raised two of the best young men and am honored to be their mom, I have an amazing daughter in law(she is truly the perfect match for my youngest), and as I have mentioned before I am a proud LaLa of one beautiful grand daughter. In another few weeks we will add another sweet girl to our family. I was fortunate to have two parents who loved me, encouraged me and were always there. Do I have regrets, sure, doesn’t everyone? But I’m choosing to look forward not backwards.  I have a long list of things I still want to do. The list no longer includes bungee jumping, I have gained some wisdom but surfing is still on. Mostly I am content, I wake up most days grateful for this life I have been given, it’s not perfect but I think its pretty close.

So, here’s my story…

I am Laurel, an author and advocate for those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. Through my book, “Laughing Through The Tears,” I hope to shed light on the journey of those affected by this condition and offer a unique perspective that combines laughter and resilience.
