I'm 32!

This past Sunday I turned 32 years old...and even though I'd like to weigh a little less and feel more athletic, I am happy to say I have lived (and continue to live) a fulfilling life. 
For some reason in the past few years I tend to get a little sad when my birthday approaches; I start thinking about what I have accomplished and what still needs to be done, I think about old friends, new friends, good ones and bad ones... I also think of what makes me happy and what makes me sad... let's just say I do a lot of thinking around this time! :)
This year, I was lucky to celebrate my 32nd birthday on a cruise with my husband, kids and parents.. it was fun, entertaining and definitely relaxing!
As I get older, my priorities keep changing as well as the meaning of life; for me, it is no longer about myself but about others.  I spend half my time thinking about what I can do for other people, what I can give of myself to make the world a better place where people are kinder to each other and more giving.
I thank God every day for blessing me with such an amazing family; a good husband who is extremely loving and supportive, kids that are angelic and well behaved and friends that enrich my life in unimaginable ways.... it doesn't get any better!
This year my birthday wish is all about spiritual peace and personal harmony, where I am able to express myself by giving others what they don't have and where I can be a better wife, mother, daughter, friend and person. 
Thank you, God for all the happy moments I have lived during these past 32 years... I hope the next hundred are half as good! :)
