Yep! It's true. Today is my 36th birthday. I was talking with a friend a couple of nights ago about how we are the middle aged adults now. Some people find this hard to accept. I embrace it. Although I'm not a huge fan of wrinkles or the fact that I have to work much harder to stay in some kind of physical shape, I am so thankful for the 36 years I've had so far. I still love to laugh and have a good time, being a nurse is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality, and I have to thank Greg for continuing to be such an amazing example of peace and strength for me.
So what do you want when you are 36?? Well, I want to be with my husband and kids. I want to enjoy the kids' excitement about going with grandma to buy me a $5 gift with their own money. I want a vitamix because I know I need more fruits and veggies in my diet. I want to lose those stinkin' 10 pounds that just will NOT come off no matter what I do.
But more than those things, I want to continue to grow up. I want to find more grace and mercy in my attitudes toward others. I want to emulate peace and comfort and true friendship to those arround me. I want to worry less and trust God in the microscopic details. I want to seek out joy continually.
Yah, I'm 36. Although I've come a long way, I still have a long way to go ~
Fall is here!
