I just had a moment.
There was something on pintrest about turning 30.
And I had a moment.
My stomach got tight and I though... 1 month...
I have never been worried about age. A teacher I worked with when I was in high school was a very smart woman who was worthy of looking up to.
She talked about how she was determined to grow old with grace. She found out early in her marriage that she would not have children. She was blessed with many nieces and nephews that she loved like her own. She had an aunt (I think) that died quite young, and this particular aunt was very obsessed with looking young. When she passed, this teacher said that she would embrace age. God has given her every year, and she is going to appreciate all that he is giving her.
I really took that to heart, and I too want to age with grace*
So I am taking this moment, putting it to the blog, and then letting it go.
I am turning 30. I have always acted like an old lady, so 30 is not that big of a deal.
