Well folks… here I am, 1 day after my 37th birthday. I don’t feel 37. I feel like I’m that 16 year old girl on the inside. I don’t know where the time has gone.
I did some reflection on my life and it’s been good. There have been things that I’ve done that I regret, but only a very few. I’ve always been conscious of the fact that my actions have consequences. I’ve always tried to be a “good kid”.
When I was 16, I thought that I would be married and have children by now. I thought that Nana and Papa would still be together and they would be living just down the road. Or maybe, a little further down the road but still in Michigan.
What I’ve got is a wonderful life. I have my Papa, and I love him dearly. I miss my Nana, but I would have never gotten to know my Papa like this, I think, with out her passing. It’s a Greek tragedy of sorts.
I have a job I love, even though I’m having problems now. With time, these troubles will also pass. I will endure the problems that I’m facing now.
I have a home, that I own. I have two wonderful dogs and many friends that love me, as I love them.
So, while it’s different than what I imagined, it’s actually better. How can I complain about that?
Today, my theme song is “I will Survive”
Here are some images of me through my life:
Have a great Monday
