Goodbye to my 30's

It's time to be retrospective, thoughtful and reflective or heck...just party like I'm turning 40!!  I looked back at my post from last year, listing a lovely bucket list of what I might accomplish in my 39th year of life.  I can check off a few items like,  to do some of the projects I've pinned on Pinterest! and ~relax and go with the flow more...stop resisting the things that cause my tension. A few items didn't happen like, finish a quilt I started and take a family vacation out of the state of Texas!  And I am OK with that (see how I go with the flow!) . The year was a realatively quiet one, with many family memories and even some pretty huge moments.  I'm pleased and proud.

My thirties, as a decade...I feel great about.  I can say I accomplished quite a bit, including: birthing two children (Jonas and Lorelei), surviving Lorelei's first 3 years of medical hell and still not having a diagnosis,  becoming a college professor, returning to elementary teaching, beginning my blog, moving into a new home, overcoming some major life curve balls.  All in all...worth every moment of joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, confidence and fear.

Looking ahead, I can't even anticipate what the next decade will bring...I'll have two children who will have graduated from high school and gone on to college!  That seems unfathomable!  So instead, I'll think of only the next year...better yet, the next day. 40th birthday.  I hope it's one I'll never forget.
