So today I am 57 years old.
That's a lot of years. Some of them have been good and some not so good. But as I look back, I don't think I would trade anything that has happened in my life. All the stuff that has made up my life, both good and bad, have shaped me into the person I am today and I feel like I am just coming into my own as a woman and a human being.
And what would I trade out of my life? I had a husband who loves me, warts and all. A daughter that a successful educator, mother, and wife. A son-in-law who strives to make himself better everyday. Two sweet, sweet grandbabies who fill my eyes with tears every time I think about them. A father who continues to beat the medical odds and keeps on kicking. And a sweet mother who helps him fight that fight everyday.
What would I trade ...nothing. It is all absolutely perfect.
