30, flirty and fabulous...

That's right...I'm thirty tomorrow.

My momma has had her 35th birthday several times. And while I find nothing wrong with her perspective, I want a different one.

I want it to be okay to get older!!!! I want it to be known that I GET to get older. I get to be immature, petty, selfish, demanding, thoughtful, giving, loving, generous and anything else that describes me because after 30 years, I know who I am. Well, mostly. I'm working on knowing who I am and no matter what age, I will always be working to become a better person.

30 can be amazing. And while I notice that my body isn't what it used to be, or my eyes or my poor knees, my VOICE is growing and maturing, my CHILDREN are getting bigger and smarter and more wonderful and NICK is mine. TY, Father.

I feel the same way. I feel no shame about my 33 years, and hope never to feel bad about my age. Age equals wisdom hopefully and I plan to gain it. :)
