One year older and wiser too...

I am another year older this month.  

"The really frightening thing about middle age is the knowledge that you'll grow out of it" - Doris Day

Let's enjoy some comments from my littles:  

"You were born in the 1900's??"  
Ummmm...technically yes...but...that just makes me sound ancient.  Ok, so being born in the "70's" doesn't sound a whole lot better but still... 

"That is a lot of old"  
Yes son.... yes it is.  

They are adorable aren't they.... 😏

A few things I have learned so far:
  • Life can knock the wind out of you and leave you GASPING for air...but those are things that can make you stronger.
  • Dark chocolate is better.  
  • I can't control everything...figuring out how to let go is really hard.
  • Having corndogs in the freezer can be a meal on those really bad nights.  (And the kids rejoice)
  • Being a mom and wife is hard....like REALLY hard....like INSANELY hard.  But OH SO worth it!
  • It's ok to wear a messy bun 90% of the time.
  • When my kids were toddlers time did not speed by like they said it would. Once they started hitting school age...it hit warp speed.  
  • Life is really good when I am grateful.


So as C.S. Lewis said, "The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is."  I am ready to let time teach me more.

HAPPY JANUARY!
