“Good morning mama, it’s your birthday! Happy birthday Mommy!” This is what I woke up to on Wednesday. I cannot think of a better way to wake up, my sweet Peanut! “I can’t believe how old you are!” was my response …huh!? Whose birthday is it?
I was excited for my big day this year, not a fancy milestone birthday… 28… but I was excited no less! Last year was the first and only year (so far) that I freaked a little about my age. I’m so over that! I am happy and proud of my age and where I am in my life right now! I wasn’t excited about presents, I was excited to be another year older, to spend time with my family, have a reason to drink wine (like I need an excuse 🙂 ) Birthdays are fun! Yup, I’m getting close to 30…OK! It beats the alternative, right!?
I am finally to a stage in my life that I am content, boy is it a nice feeling! I have found myself and what I want to do in this world. I have a wonderful marriage, 2 perfect kiddos, the best friends a girl could ask for and so much more! I have so much to be grateful for, that the thought of stopping to complain, scares the hell out of me! My family has been through A LOT the past couple years, it is time for happiness and nothing less!
I am getting older, we all are, but we’re getting somewhere!! We are wiser, more understanding, more understood, we’re moving forward! What is better than that? If you are NOT moving forward, you should change something in your life… because the feeling I have is AMAZING and I hope that everyone can be at this place in their lives at some point!
Thank you to my family, my beautiful friends, thank you to my wonderful husband, my kids and their friends! I had a wonderful birthday, and it is because I have all of you in my life! I am so blessed!
