Thirty

I turned 30 on Thursday, June 6th.

It was a glorious day. Beautiful spring/summer weather. I trained eager and energetic clients, taught a fun spin class where they asked me 30 questions while we rode, trained my mom (a special treat), snuggled with Finn, took a road ride with Joey and enjoyed a long, slow dinner with fantastic friends at Packard’s New American Kitchen in Midtown OKC.

Joey made the day special in so many ways: a banner, balloons, hydrangeas, and he made me wear this flashing birthday necklace at dinner.

I felt so special; so blessed and so thankful.

In thirty years, I’ve gained…a rock star husband and his family, a startlingly funny and joyful son named Finn Joseph and a new perspective on ability and disability because of him. A few fantastic recipes, a c-section scar and a collection of new wrinkles around my eyes and mouth. Life-long friends, an undergraduate and masters degree, a slower metabolism but a faster cycling cadence. A deeper understanding of God’s love for me but less understanding of His mysterious purposes. A heart teeming with gratitude for His blessings, and a hunger for another thirty years…or so.
