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. Tomorrow...my 40th birthday. I hope it's one I'll never forget.
