The Third Decade

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the third decade of my life. It is amazing what has happened over those 31 years – the adventures, the pain, the fun, the friends and family… ah, God is good.

Note: The decade doesn’t officially start until the “1” as the “0” year is simply the tenth year of the previous decade.

But this is not a post of refection, it is a party post as my family surprised me last night was a birthday party…. And boy did they pull it off!

You see, every other week we come down the mountain and spend the night in town with my in-laws so that my father-in-law has a chance to see his grandson (my mother-in-law drives up the mountain every week). This week was that week – so after work, I went over to the in-laws house for supper and a relaxing evening full of discussions and books.

Yet when I walked into the house, the living room and dinning room was decorated with balloons and banners – and everyone  started singing “happy birthday”. It was great – especially when my little boy ran up to me for a hug and started clapping in turn with everyone! 😀

Much happiness! And tons of love!

Thank you all for a great 31st birthday!!!

  2. My mother just pointed out that I’m actually starting my 4th decade of life, not the third:

    First decade: birth-10
    Second decade: 11-20
    Third decade: 21-30
