Well, today is my birthday…yes, another year older! Do I feel it, you might say so, as last week I ended up having to have surgery on my knee because of a torn meniscus. I would not have thought that being as young as I am that I would already have to be dealing with this type of procedure, but alas, I did. So I am still using crutches, but I am bouncing back pretty well thus far.
Since I have become a parent, I tell people that I can definitely see time moving forward, and it moves by fast! The reason I see this on a daily basis is because of my girls and how much they are growing each day. Diva-PJ is talking more and more daily and Diva-J is learning so much in school. I look at them and am floored by the progress that they make. Watching this I realize how much they are growing which then means that I too am growing older as well. So even though I do see some grey in my hair (they say it looks distinguished on a man), my girls are the mirror through which I see my age progressing, not the static mirror that I look into each morning.
So as I grow another year older, am I upset or concerned about this…no, not really… but ask me a few years down the road and we’ll see if the answer remains the same (it probably will with my optimistic nature!).
