Make It Count

Today is my birthday.  And an important one at that.  Now I'm 29.  It's strange to think that this decade is quickly drawing to a close.  Oh, well!  I feel pretty accomplished already.  In 28 short years, I've been a wife for nearly six years, a mother to three adorable, rascally girls, a college graduate in (what else?) animal science, biology option.  I've seen my husband through a degree in aerospace engineering and three internships, both while working full time and eventually transitioning to being a stay-at-home mother.  I've lived in a handful of places--Lincoln, NE, Jewell and Cedar Rapids, IA, Waco, TX, Montreal, QC and soon Indianapolis, IN--and have met wonderful friends at each location.  I'm a homeowner and have had a million experiences fixing up our century old farmstead while enjoying watching my very own horses out my window.  I could go on and on about how wonderful life has been so far but I feel like I'm bragging.  Besides, there are still so many things I hope to experience during this mortal sojourn, in the coming year and the many beyond that.

However, I'm going to make sure this next really year counts.
