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?

Anyway...

Happy birthday to me - almost!
