A Birthday Reflection:

I am a big fan of Diana Gabaldon’s books and the main characters in the book “take stock” on their birthdays.  You know... they think about their life,  they think about their bodies, and where they stand at the age they are at.  I like this idea.  So, today on my birthday I am reflecting.  

Starting with health... I feel very healthy.  I do want to start being more active, but I have started walking 2 miles a day again and that feels really good.  I’d like to work up to running but that will take time on my own at night or in the morning... I don’t have alot of time so that will be a goal for in the future.  I am a bit heavier than I’d like to be.  I am only telling you this because I have decided to be completely honest! LOL other than that my body is holding up good no real aches or pains to speak of.  

I feel that my life is headed in the right direction.  I really like my job and I am learning alot about new things that I haven’t been a part of before which is exciting and fun.  I feel very blessed to have the people I have in my life and other than wishing I could see all of my people more often who could ask for more than having so many people who are important to me who I love and who love me.  

Everyday is a new adventure.  Life can be hectic, crazy, loud, very busy!  Truly I wake up everyday knowing that today will be filled with more joy than I will know what to do with.  I am very blessed and I am very grateful for this.  My husband, and kiddos make my life complete and I don’t know what I’d do without them... be utterly bored probably! LOL

I look back on this year and just have to smile because so much has happened.  It feels like it went by sooooo fast! It also was filled with so much!  I look forward to another year filled to the brim with fun, and excitement!  Let the adventure begin!

Love to all my family and friends who help fill my everyday with so much!
