Yesterday was my 26th birthday. I decided (in the face of negative emotions about getting older) to have a positive attitude about getting older – since you can’t help it anyway, you might as well embrace it. Twenty -six has nice ring to it. And I’m happy with what I – or, rather, what the LORD has accomplished in my life in the past, so I have no regrets. I am blissfully married to someone I have claimed I want to grow old with :), I am a mother to an adorable, pleasant child, and the year I am 26 I will bear another child. What’s not to embrace?!
