As I begin to write this post, my birthday will be in 12 minutes. It's sad when I think about how excited I would get during my youth while counting down the hours until "my" day. It was like a Christmas morning all over again, but my birthdays were all about me. However, these days I would prefer to forget about them and act like they're just another day. More often than not, I'll shed a tear...or two.
I don't know why I get all emotional now, but I can only guess that subconsciously, I know I'm gradually getting old. Why I let that bother me, I don't know. My life, thus far, has been wonderful. Always surrounded by family and friends and generally happy all the time. Yes, I have my moments...
I really couldn't have asked for much more. I was born into a wonderful family.
I married my best friend and soul mate, thus becoming part of another fabulous family.
Watched our beautiful daughter get married and gained a son.
Then was blessed with the most handsome grandsons ever!
So, in reality, I need to count my blessings and thank God for another year. I just hope that the next 29 years are just as happy! :)
