Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my Birthday. I am 48...
48.
When did that happen? Time is in fast speed. Freaks me out.
I mean sometimes I feel like I am just 38, then I will feel 58. I feel playful and strong, or tired and sore. I still think the same as when I was 18, however I am more logical and practical. Sometimes I am wise beyond my years.
I really don't mind the "age thing". I do mind the "aging thing". The body changes, the aches, the forgetfulness.
I am in a good place... I have a wonderful husband, and darling daughters. A roof over our heads, food on the table, and jobs to pay the bills. I have Christ in my life that gets me through the tough times as well as the good. My health is good, my state of mind is fair.
Sometimes I am troubled by the would have, could have, and should haves. But I feel the paths I have taken are those with God at my side guiding me along the way.
My day was truly Blessed.
I was able to spend it with extended family~ my folks, Aunt & Uncle, Cousins (including a fav that shares my birthday), and Emily for a cook-out. After that, Annie and Emily took me for Mani-Pedi's. Then Sergio meet up with us for a lovely dinner, stroll and some shopping. We ended the night with a good suspense flick {Shutter Island}.
Today we will enjoy Fathers Day, and it will feel wonderful celebrating the great Father my Husband is to the girls.
Life is good.
Even at 48.

Happy Birthday!! Glad you had a wonderful day. You're such a sweetie. Just a couple of years older than I, though you seem to not mind the aging as much as I do. :) Though, I can totally relate - most of the time, I feel the same as I did inside, as when I was a little girl. Just the aches and pains that bother me. And the thought that life slips away so fast...

Hope you have a blessed new year of life. ♥

Happy birthday Janis! It's amazing how fast time goes after your children get out of high school. You still look the same to me as you did in high school at Howe. Have a great birthday week! A old friend from Howe! Lee
