Last week I turned 36! Wow that went fast. It’s amazing how you get older and start to appreciate aging more than fearing it. I used to think being in my mid 30s was so old, and now I feel younger in many ways than I did in my 20s!! Maybe because I’m no longer bogged down by my old baggage! I’m way more confident (even though I looked way less tired back then!) and am way more aware of my faults and bad habits.
Another big difference is in my 30s I’m no longer defined by my mistakes. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable, take risks, while at the same time I’m taking ownership (and enjoying!) the responsibilities and challenges that come with being a stay at home wife and mother.
Honestly, being in my 30s rocks. And I’m totally not rushing things, but am completely looking forward to my 40s. Life is such a gift, and everyday God gives me I’m grateful for. I’m married to my best friend, have 3 kids by my side, 3 heaven-side, and my health. So, so grateful.
So thank you Lord, for blessing me with another year. I am so grateful. And friends – don’t dread aging! Every scar and wrinkle tells a beautiful story.
