Happy Birthday to Me!
Today I am 36 years old and honestly, it doesn't bother me near as much as I thought it would. The older I get the more I realize that life really has nothing to do with age. I mean sure if you are 36 there are some things that you cannot do like you could if you were 18. But most of those things are overrated anyway.
My thirties have been the best years of my life. The hardest, most emotional, exhausting, sober, longest, shortest, best years of my life. When I was 31 I married the most humble, wonderful, hard working man I had ever met and he came with a beautiful pair of dimples. When I was 32 I delivered an amazing little girl with big blue eyes that is tied for the spot of my very best friend in the entire world. When I was 34 I delivered another blue eyed honey that I like to call "the love of my life". At 35 I gave birth to a little boy. A little boy that I was blessed to be the only one that ever got to know him alive A little boy that changed our lives and the lives of everyone that loves us. A little boy that lives in the big blue eyes of my girls that I look into everyday.
I am humbled by the love of my parents, overwhelmed by the devotion of my husband, bombarded by friendship from my sister and brother and in awe of the beauty of my children. I have four of the most wonderful women in the world that I get to call my best friends. My Nana is still alive and knows my babies.
My marriage is strong
and my kids are
I am certain that I am one of the most blessed women in the world and I am so much more than thankful for it. I am happy and exhausted and full and empty and loved and selfish and crazy and fun and overwhelmed and lonely and busy and full of flaws and imperfections and all I can do today is smile. Smile knowing that I am doing exactly what I want to do everyday; raising my girls, loving my husband and worshiping the One and only God. I am 36 years old and I have no idea how it can get better than this.
Happy Birthday to Me. Thank you all for making it a wonderful day but more than that thank you for blessing my life.
