Celebrating your birthday is one of the biggest blessings in life, one to cherish!
When I look at today, the day of my birth 37 years ago, I can’t help but think I am almost 40!! I hope the next 37 years go by little slower than the first 37 have.
Even though it is going by fast I honestly could not ask for more! I have had the best childhood, have the best parents, have close siblings, have a great education, I have a great husband and kids! I can’t wait to see what the next 37 years brings this 37 has been pretty darn good!
Sometimes it seems like yesterday I was riding my banana seat bicycle up and down the streets of Titonka, IA. This was back when kids could ride all over town and not worry about the negativity of the world that there is now days!
I can’t help but think, “What will the world be like for my kids? Their kids?” Just the thought somewhat scares me a little and lets me know I have a lot of work to do to protect and guide them!
Happy Birthday to me, taking the day off!
