Happy Birthday To Yours Truly

Yep, I'm officially 34 years old now.  Not sure how I feel about it.  I don't feel 34.  Honestly, I feel about 25.  It's like my life has been so full of running a household and raising kids and nurturing my marriage that it's like someone has pushed the fast-forward button on my life and here I am.  Where did the time go?  I'm here in Middle-Age-Dom like I've been teleported here.  One minute I was in my 20's and here I am 34.  

So I have two choices...

1.  To complain that I'm 34 and wish I was 20 again and dwell on all of the should-have, could-haves...OR

2.  I can be truly humbled that God has given me the life He has and be oh-so-thankful that's He has given me another year to enjoy it.  I have a great hubby, 3 great kids,  my health, lots of friends, a nice house, a dependable vehicle, plenty of food in my pantry, and my bills are paid.  
What more could a girl woman want?

FYI...I chose Option #2. 

On a much less serious note, hubby has taken the day off today and told me we can do whatever I want....how cool is that?  Of course, I chose shopping!  You should have seen the look on his face!  PRICELESS.   

Have a great day!
