in Self Matters

37 is a pretty cool number. It’s the age I turn today around five o’clock. (I’m sure my mom will pinpoint the exact time in the comments section…)

Last year I was wrong about my birthday; I thought I was turning 37 but when I did the math, I realized I was getting ahead of myself. This whole past year feels like a bonus year, a blessing.

But 37? 37 is the year I have a four-year-old son and an almost eight-year-old, solid marriage.

I’ve got a little home-based business I enjoy doing, a warm and cozy home, good friends and neighbours and a big garden space in my back yard. The love of my family surrounds me. My body and mind are healthy.

37 is a pretty great number.

You’re always so sweet and kind, Amanda. Thank you!

Amy, I had a laugh at your comment about getting ahead or your age of 37 because I did the exact same thing at the exact same age as you. it was the best thing ever feeling that I gained back a whole year in a moments notice! The happiness and contentment you feel about your marriage, your child, and your home resonates with me so much too. I know a happy girl when I read this!

There must be something that happens to our brains at a certain age, eh, Kira? :D

5:03 p.m. exactly; I couldn’t let you down.

I’m starting to think that 57 is not so bad either. If you are in that place you describe, Amy, then I’ll take 57 any day.

I always thought it was 5:01. No matter the time on the clock, I’ll never forget the moment Nate was born, and I’m sure you’ll always remember the moment Matt and I came into the world, too!
