Happy Birthday To Me

I turn thirty-eight tomorrow.

When I was sixteen, thirty-eight seemed ancient.

I know, everyone says that.

Because it's true!

My mother's youngest child is almost forty. That's me! Two more years. There's a thought. I'm the mother of an almost-eighteen year old and almost-fifteen year old.

I'm not sure how I feel about being thirty-eight. Feels bigger than thirty-seven for some reason.

Yet when I look back...

Dawn - 18 months

Dawn - 2 1/2

Dawn - 4

Dawn - Kindergarten

Dawn - Age 6

Dawn - Age 8

Dawn - Age 10

Dawn - Age 11

Dawn - Age 18

Dawn - Age 20

Dawn - Age 25

Dawn - age 37

Those years feel like a million years ago.

Why is that?


Happy birthday to me - almost!
