Today is my 35th birthday. I am officially in my mid thirties. If I got pregnant again (not happening), my medical chart would be plastered with alerts warning staff of “advanced maternal age”. Does that mean I am now an advanced mother?
Anyways, to celebrate my birthday, Charlie and I spent a lovely afternoon at Harper’s Ferry, WV. The overcast sky made way for the sun just as we arrived. We spent the afternoon playing in the grass by the river, walking on trails, and strolling through town. Oddly enough, I think the shuttle bus was Charlie’s favorite part of the adventure.
Getting older doesn’t bother me. I am not embarrassed by my age nor do I dread getting old. Mostly, I am grateful for the privilege to grow older. Additionally, I’m thankful beyond words to have Charlie with me.
Birthdays do not get any better than today.
