Sometimes I wonder....

When did I grow up? I'm not sure how it happened, but it did. Had my birthday and I maintained control, didn't get hammered and feel decent this morning instead of like the walking dead! Beautiful dinner, wonderful friends, nice hotel and decent breakfast. All in all, not a barn burner, but a very good solid verification of how lucky I am.

What makes it all worthwhile? I just love my life. Sounds very cliche, but it is true. Days like today make me realize that over and over. I have amazing friends who love me despite the fact that I'm late to my own party. I have a husband who "gets me" most days, and that is priceless. I have healthy kids and wonderful pets. We have just enough money to keep our bills mostly paid and God is ever present in our lives. It's all very, very good.

What would I do if I could choose anything? Hmmmm.... That's not any easy thing to wrap my head around. I am so blessed and so very spoiled, I am starting to realize I have exactly everything I want and, most importantly, everything I NEED. There isn't much I lack, unless you count time, and I don't know that any of us ever has enough of that! I imagine I would choose to spend my time exactly as I have. I would relax at an amazing dinner with my husband, have a drink or two with my close friends and spend the night in a hotel enjoying my marriage. I'm only missing my kids who are playing with friends or grandmas... And that too is ok with me!

Happy Birthday to me... All grown up!

  1. yes happy birthday to you! You know, I feel the same as you. Someone asked me at the weekend if I'm prone to depression or the glums, and i'm not. I feel SO lucky and blessed to be surrounded by people who love me, that we're all healthy, we have wonderful friends, jobs we enjoy, enough money...all those 'things'. I have nothing to be glum about. I have no regrets, there are things I've done I'm not proud of but I'm proud of who we are today as a family.

    In a couple of weeks I'll be 40. It's a big milestone, but no I don't feel glum. Not a bit xxx
