36 and Counting!!

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 ~

I love this - "Although I've come a long way, I still have a long way to go"! I feel the same way.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday - sounds like you are extra blessed.
