Today I am 32. Time is a strange thing. If you would have asked me 10 years ago what my life would be like today I would have never guessed. My husband Cale and I are on our 10th year of marriage. We now have two boys. Max is 6 years old and in 1st grade, and Jake is 4 years old and in preschool. I live within 1.5 miles of my parents and my brother and his wife and kids. I have my Masters degree and 8 years of experience teaching 3 year-olds to 65 year-olds. I feel like I’ve lived through a lot, but I know I haven’t, that’s just my 32 year-old mind’s perception. In some ways I feel like I’ve already experienced a lot, but in other ways I feel like I’ve only just begun. My goal for this next year of my life, as long as God allows me to live, is to get busy. There’s so much more good that I need to do. There are so many more things that I need to accomplish. However, I realize that life is an ongoing project and I may never actually finish doing the work that I need/want to do, but you know what? I can at least get started, and that’s what I aim to do. It’s going to be great to be 32.
(PS) Here’s a link to my dad’s website. He did a podcast and a post for my birthday today. He’s pretty great.
(PPS) I’ve started various posts since the last one was actually published. For one reason or another I haven’t put anything new up on this website in 2 years. Why? I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I don’t think anyone is reading anyway, or maybe it’s because life just happens sometimes and we neglect things. I still write often, but it’s private, it’s nothing I want to share. However, there are things I want to write about, simply because writing is cathartic for me. So hopefully, as I am getting my life back on track, (oh, did I mention I’ve been off the rails for a while?) I can share some things in the process.
