33 years ago today I came into this world not knowing much of how it all worked. 33 years later, I can say that I still don’t have much of a clue!  When I was younger I thought that being in your 30’s was sooooo old. But here’s the thing: now the 30’s seem young.  There are days when I still feel like I’m that 16 year old girl in high school (which Thank God…I’m not!)  But in all seriousness, it is extremely wierd to me that I am 33.  I said it when I turned 30 and had my early mid-life meltdown, and now I’m saying it again at 33….SURREAL!  

Mom and Dad:  Its been a long 33 years for you, putting up with me….but don’t worry, I’m like good wine… only getting better with age! hehehehe (thought you would love that analogy) Thanks for loving me for the past 33 years, even those moments when I didn’t deserve it!

    All your pictures of me show how old I’ve become. ugh..I am so proud of Maureen and her willingness to serve God in such remote places and allow His will to be most important in her life. What a creative woman. So talented (not certain where all that biologically came from)
    Continue to operate and live in God’s grace..
