It's My Birthday!

I'm 32 today.

Yes, I just declared my age to all of you out there in cyber space.

I'm not ashamed of my age, nor am I bitter or fearful of aging. I think it's something I learned from my Mom. She never once bemoaned her aging. She never ran, filled with hopes of slowing the aging process, credit cards in hand to the nearest cosmetics counter, doctors office, or infomercial pitchman's promise of eternal youth. For my entire life, my Mom has aged gracefully (it doesn't hurt that she also ages well and honestly doesn't look her age, but neither does my Grandma). She also never pressured me to worry about my I don't.

So, once again I say with pride...

I'm 32 today!

I pray I make it to 33 and beyond.
