This year my birthday included lots of fun and celebration with family and friends. I’m so grateful for another healthy and happy year. When I went to tuck my birthday cards away this afternoon I found this:
April 5, 2010 Monday – It’s nearly one year later! And my, oh my, how time has flown. I turn 34 tomorrow and begin another year. I wonder what the next year of my life will bring?
Age 33 was very good to me. My boys grew like weeds and remain healthy and strong. They definitely keep me on my toes and make every day eventful! It’s amazing how fast they are growing and changing. I love every minute with them, even when they are driving me bonkers!
Kerry and I are celebrating 11 years together. I feel like I’ve known him forever, yet I can’t believe we’ve been together for so long. Our first days together in Denmark seem like a lifetime ago! We are happy and healthy and still so inlove, and I’m so thankful to be married to my best friend.
Staying home with the boys remains my favorite “job” in the world, and now that I have a few more hours to myself I’m adding “writer” to the job description, too. I began a brand new novel in January and it’s already finished! Onto editing and revising, and thinking about publishing. I have a dream of staying home and being a writer, and as Kerry says “You won’t know unless you try – the worst that can happen is nothing!” So I am trying! And having fun too; writing stories is so interesting!
For a while I dreamed of being able to use my scrapbooking skills as a means to work from home, but I never found that the answer. I guess life doesn’t always hand us exactly what we want, but often the alternative is an even bigger and better answer. Only time will tell! But no matter what comes next, I am forever grateful for life as it is right now. It is absolutely perfect. – Bonnie, age 33 and 364 days
I love this – love reading back over all that I was thankful for – and still am. ©
