Embracing My Years~

I turned 27 on Friday. I cannot believe that I am 27 years old. I'm almost to the point where I'm not going to be in 20's anymore and I just can't believe that it's gone by this fast.

I know a lot of people, especially women, dread each birthday. They're getting older, and they don't want to. I'm the opposite ~ I love growing older. Every year I discover a little more of who I am inside. I can think back 5 years ago and it's shocking to see what a different person I was. I am pleased with the person that I have become.

I worry less about things that seemed to be of so much importance back then. I treasure things I didn't care about before. I've become a much better mom, a much better wife and I think I am much better person inside.

I embrace each year, because I think with each year I grow; I mature. I learn a little bit more about life, when I thought I knew it all the year before. I learn a little bit more about my husband, when I thought I knew him inside and out. I get to see what beautiful people my kids are slowly turning into. I love each year, I love my Birthday and embrace it all ~ because this is life and instead of dreading we need to be grateful and live it up to its fullest.

Every day to me is a gift, and I treasure every year granted to me just the same. I hope to see 100 and I hope that it's all documented right here on Garibay Soup.

Here's to another fabulous year ~ and hopefully many more. I can't wait to see what I learn and become along the way.

Here's my sister and me celebrating another year of my life!

You look beautiful. I've got 10 years on you (my birthday's this week, so happy birthday to us both) and I don't feel like I'm edging up on 40! But I totally agree that birthdays and life are to be celebrated. Thanks again for BlogNerd.:)

Great post!

I'm in my last year of my 20's, and obviously there is nothing I can do about it, so I'm slowly learning to embrace it.

I think my hang-up is that I feel like sometimes I'm still not old enough to be 29, if that makes any sense. Like I still need to call home and check in with Mommy and Daddy. I sometimes wonder how I got to have a mortgage payment, bills, and a family and not feel old enough to have it all! lol

(Sorry...there was a grammatical error in my first comment, and it was driving.me.crazy! lol)
