Thoughts on turning 36

It’s my birthday on Wednesday. I’ll be 36 years old. That seems so old, but I still feel weird when someone refers to me as a “woman”…I feel like a “girl”!!

Mom had a little party for me tonight with my mother-in-law, Hubster, the boys, Joanne, BIL and the girls. We had a nice roast lamb dinner and she bought an ice cream cake with a picture of Huey Lewis on it!! It was great…I just felt bad cutting into Huey’s gorgeous face! LOL!

Hubster and I went to his cousin, Lisa’s wedding last night. The groom’s Mom read a poem that had me sobbing and made me realize how time flies…

My hands were busy through the day,
I didn’t have much time to play,
The little games you asked me to,
I didn’t have much time for you.
I’d wash your clothes, I’d sew and cook,
But when you’d bring your picture book,
And ask me, please to share your fun,
I’d say, “A little later son.”
I’d tuck you in all safe at night,
And hear your prayers, turn out the light,
Then tiptoe softly to the door,
I wish I’d stayed a minute more.
For life is short, and years rush past,
A little boy grows up so fast,
No longer is he at your side,
His precious secrets to confide.
The picture books are put away,
There are no children’s games to play,
No good-night kiss, no prayers to hear,
That all belongs to yesteryear.
My hands once busy now lie still,
The days are long and hard to fill,
I wish I might go back and do,
The little things you asked me to.

Life is too short… Pin It
