It's my Brithday!!!!

AND I'M 30!!! I thought I'd feel sad that I'm getting older, but I'm not! I feel younger than ever today. I feel happier than ever too. I've learned so much about life and myself.

What have I learned in 30 years?

*Life is easy, it's as easy as you make it. And I'm learning how to control that and make my own life enjoyable and fun.

*Having kids can be hard sometimes. But SO WORTH EVERY EFFORT you put into raising them.

*Marriage is fabulous and fun if you let it be. When you let your spouse just be who they are and have no expectations that they be anything other than that, you find a freedom and love that you just can't deny. It's wonderful, and my marriage is more than wonderful.

*God is good, and in every one of us.

*Good friends are those that you don't have to work for. Meaning whatever you do or say won't matter, they love you anyway. And when I realized that, it made it easier to BE a friend.

*Family is EVERYTHING. They are every part of who I am, and are just s big a part of me and I am myself.

*Every struggle I've ever had with ANYONE has been a blessing in disguise. Everyone sent to me in my lifetime is an angel sent to help me or teach me a valuable lesson. And I'm still growing and getting more lessons and blessings everyday.

*LIVE IN THE MOMENT. THIS MOMENT IS THE ONLY MOMENT THAT REALLY EXISTS. Tomorrow doesn't exist yet, and yesterday is gone and no longer matters. So why not enjoy what you have right here in front of you right NOW!

WOW! The big 30! I know it is so weird to get older, and annoying...I loved all of your insights, they are so true....Maddie really misses Kelsie too, in fact she talks about going over to grandma Dees all the time. We are coming out for a month in a couple of weeks, so tell Kelsie we will see her then!
