lucky


today i turn 39 years old.
39 times around the sun.
i have earned every line, wrinkle and grey.
they are mine.
we woke to a blizzard, but i was served warm sugared donuts in bed by my family who loves me.
later we had a snowball fight and i climbed the snow plow hill and remembered what it felt like to be a kid.
i am blessed and loved and feel very lucky to be right where i am.
life has not always been easy, but it is mine and i am ever grateful for it all.

hello 39
lets do this.
