... I know they say age is just a number but I would have to disagree.
Age is a milestone and a journey. It is a story and a path.
When I was 14 it wasn't just a number; it was my second year of being in the "teens". It was working for the first time and having a little independence. It was learning how to have and be a really good friend. It was walking around the mall without my mom. It was church summer camp and learning God was there.
When I was 24 it wasn't just a number. It was putting on my wedding dress and walking down the aisle. It was becoming a wife and learning how to love a man unconditionally. It was paying my bills on time and buying enough groceries for the week.
Now that I am 34 I can say for sure, age is not just a number. My convictions are stronger and my expectations are higher. I know what I am good at and what I am not. I know what makes my heart ache and what brings me pure joy.
I am happy to have been 14 and 24 and I am grateful for my journey and the choices and chances I have received along the way. I am proud to be mom and a wife. I am glad to be 34. ~
