I Have It All.

When my mom was my age she had a 20 year old daughter. 20 years later, my mom has a 40 year old daughter. Weird. My mom celebrated her 60th birthday last week. We threw a surprise party for her on Mother's day. Fun! Happy 60th mom!

I have asked Daniel on several occasions, "What if we'd met 10 years earlier? Do you think we would have had the same experience when we met?" He always gives me the same answer. "No". And I think it's because he knows what my next question will be. "If we had gotten married years earlier, do you think we would have been able to have more children?" And then he just looks at me with that look. I know, I know. It's not even worth thinking about. Even though he was so cute even then. I'd like to think I would have fallen just as hard. But with the experiences we had separately through the single years, we just wouldn't be the same people we are now. And I kinda like who we are.

So right now I'm 40 and I have an 11 year old, a 9 year old and a 7 year old.
And when I'm 60 I'll have.....
Doesn't matter. Right now I have Joy. Right now I have it all.
