I woke up this morning and found myself another year older! I am 37 years old today. I am now the same age as my mother was when I was born. I remember when I was younger, how I thought that 37 was just so OLD….ha! Now that I am here, sitting at the big 37, I don’t feel so old. In fact, I actually feel pretty young. I feel smarter that I used to be, but with the knowledge that I still have a long way to go. The kids all made me birthday cards this morning, and my mother in law sent me some really beautiful flowers.
It’s been a great journey so far. I have nothing to complain about, and I am very blessed. I have four beautiful children who are my reason for being. I am thankful that even though my days are busy and sometimes stressful, I get to see their smiling faces each and every day. I am thankful too, for the gift of my health. I try not to take for granted the fact that I can hop out of bed every morning and go about my day and do what needs to be done.
Today has been a beautiful day and I don’t want the rest of it to pass me by. I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday weekend and enjoy spending time with loved ones and friends.
