It is my birthday today, my 31st to be exact.
And I'm over women trying to hide their age.
I mean don't get me wrong, I'm extremely flattered when one of our students in youth ministry says,
" I thought you were like 22."
I usually say something like, "You are the child I never had and would your parents let me adopt you."
But I know they *know* I'm older.
You know being in your 30's is not the "death sentence" I had imagined it to be.
After turning 29 I freaked out over turning the dreaded *30* for the entire year. Yes, you read that right the ENTIRE YEAR, just ask my poor husband.
But I have discovered something over the last year, and that is...
I'm a planner and an organizer in fact it is both a good quality and a character flaw.
So I subconsciously organized my freak out a full year ahead of time so I could be cool and relaxed when I did finally turn 30. You know what, it worked..... turning 30 was fine and no big deal. Well other than being 4 days overdue with my 3rd child.......30 was great and turning 31 is better. I have just fallen from "she just turned 30," to "She is in her early 30's" category. And you know what? I'm now OK with it. So here are a few things I want to share with you that I have learned over my last year.
I have loved getting to know who this special baby girl is.
Not being pregnant on your birthday is.........A-May-to-the-Zing!
When you are four .....you are totally free.
When you are six you're smart and studious and you think your Mama knows everything.
I am over the moon for this man more this year than last and this picture may have something to do with it. *swoon.*
Overexposed pictures are a beauty secret I'm willing to share....they wash out freckles and hide wrinkles.....
I have discovered a fountain of youth.
See what I mean.
Blessings to you today!
