My next 30 years

I think I’ll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years
~ Tim McGraw, "My Next 30 Years"

I don't know which makes me feel older: making mom go on an emergency Metamucil and prune run for me or turning 30.

Either way, I have turned another decade older and now have two reconstructed hips that I hope will hold me for the next 30 years.

Twenty-nine was quite a year for me, with two major surgeries and the lessons that followed. I see so many opportunities in the next year that it's hard to be sad about turning 30.

I am thankful for all I've experienced, learned and loved in three decades. My PAOs have been a giant part of the person I'm becoming, and I'm proud of the scars and strength I've gained in the process.
