on sunday i turned 28. it amazes me that somedays i feel so young and others quite old. it varies from day to day. i was actually pregnant with my first when i was 20 so my 20’s have been filled with a lot of grown up things, like having kids. but then there are days that i just sit and realize how much i don’t know and haven’t learned yet. i often have to remind myself to enjoy my kids because this does not last forever(something young mothers do). i also have tried most of my life to be older. i think this is the year that i will be a responsible but 28 year old woman. i’m done with being older.

i met jonathan when i was eighteen years old and was married at 19. we truly have watched one another grow up. i pray that this year i will be wise in enjoying this stage in life and the age that i am.

    Well, I’ve definitely watched you grow up…not sure the opposite is true. 🙂 I’m much more of one of those “work in progress” cases. So, THANK YOU for tolerating this slow growth. Love you tons and congrats on surviving another year. 🙂 You rock my world.

    Happy Birthday!! I didn’t know how young you were. You are a year younger than me and have one more kid than I do. I can’t imagine having four right now. Congrats on not going crazy. 🙂 To have four small children and be finished with school is HUGE! I admire you. You are my inspiration that I can be a great mom and still finish school. Now, enjoy being 28! We are only young once.

    I didn’t realize we were so close in age (close in the grand scheme of things, at least. I think 5 years is close!) My mom got married at 19, too, so growing up I always expected that I would too. I’ll be 24 when I do, and people still tell me that’s too young! I got rather off track there…anyway, happy (belated) birthday!
