Today is my birthday.
As I get older my birthdays seem to be something like a double edged sword.
On the one hand I feel lucky to be here, how many people pass away with out getting to be 34 years old? Having a family with a beautiful little girl, a busy little boy, a handsome and rugged, lovingly obnoxious husband?
On the other hand I feel my youth slipping away. I was talking to a friend about something that happened when I was in high school …when I realized that was 20 years ago!
WHAT….When did that happen?
The “boys” at the grocery store and restaurants now call me ma’am.
I know it’s the natural progression on things, but it’s a hard pill to swallow..
I decided to take a birthday portrait, wow…not easy to look at my self on my 24″ monitor when I already feel sensitive about the aging process.
