Seems like a LONG time...LOL!
How does it feel?
I'm not sad about this at all. Should I be?
It is what it is.
I've been so blessed in my 30 years that I feel like it would be ungrateful of me to be sad that I have lived such a full life.
I don't want to write about my husband and children today. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE them with every fiber of my 30-year-old self....but I think you already hear about them on a daily basis.
In fact, over the past 10 years, I feel like I've hidden myself behind them.
Actually, I think that we all somehow hide behind the people in our lives.
We define ourselves by other people...
daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother...
But, I choose to reflex on me today.
(It's my birthday, afterall, right?)
I am 30.
I am blessed.
I am content.
I am happy.
I have accepted who I am.
I am able to be honest with myself and, in turn, others.
I am loved.
ALL of you.
If you are reading this, you have been a part of my first 30 years.
Maybe you even recognize some of those faces of mine....or maybe some of them will just put a smile on your face...or let's face it, make you LAUGH out LOUD (the cute phase...the awkward phase...the fun phase...the mom phase) All of which could be interchangable if you ask me ;)
Celebrate with me Today!
Take a Moment and Count Your Blessings....or just think of One.
Life is GOOD.
Have a HAPPY Day with me on my
DAY of BIRTH!
