age... a state of being...

Age is so relative...
Age is such a state of being..
I am turning 37 in a few days.
That sounds so mature,
so figured out!

Sometimes I feel older...
sometimes I feel like a
miss rather then a 'ma am'....

It amazes me how life plays a part
in who we are
and how 'old' the age we are
really is!

In my 20's
I had 3 children &
I celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary
by the age of 28.

in my 30's
I was divorced,
not once,
but twice.
I lost my home..
I started over
again..and again..and then again.
I sarted working full time,
and I went back to college.

As I look at this rest of this decade
I would love to think the changes are done!
The challenges faced!
And yet-
now I am at that 'age'..
the age where I have teenagers...
a stage that might age me
faster then any other!

This next year..or 2 ..or 3...
I hope....
for love?
not sure!
for money?
not really!
for happiness?
to a degree...
for stability?
for peace?

and in my 40's?
maybe I will have a midlife crisis
and become a gypsy living in California!
Or maybe..
I will just do what I have always done;
Love my Lord,
Love my kids,
Love my family....
and let the rest take care of itself!

  6. HA HA! Yes- I know!! :) I just meant in my 30's I got a full time job for the first time..:)!!!

  7. Debbie, I loved my 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's, now I am loving my 60's......each age offers so much, teaches many lessons and gives so much love. Enjoy every age my friend, it is something I have never regretted.......:-)Hugs
