Mid-Twenties

I turned 25. 4 days ago. It never occurred to me to make it a big deal. Until there were just too many people who told me things like, "25? That's big. Do you have grand plans of celebrating it?" "Have you taken time to look back at what has taken place in your life the past 25 years?" " Hmmm, mid-twenties - what's in it for you now?"

And so it hit me. It did.

1 marriage, 2 kids, mom loss of mom, loss of dad, loss of dad-in-law, grad from college, 1 real job.
And then I came across this and this.

And while reading, found myself nodding in agreement. A lot of which I must say I am going through right now but trying to push aside to focus on more important things. And so a lot of things come to my mind. Things I would want to do, many of which, me being me, I would want to do and accomplish right away. But I know I can't.

So in the meantime, I will start by trying to be a better person. A better mom. And a better wife.

Happy belated birthday, sweet Louann.

Life is a journey and we often don't find ourselves on paths we think we'd choose but can make the very best of and become better people because of them.
