42 Years Old

Sunday, January 06, 2019
I don't think a birthday has hit me this hard since I turned 26 and thought I was so old that the world would come to an end.  We had been trying for a baby this year, but it didn't happen for us, making this birthday even more difficult in many ways as we processed the loss of what could have been.  Sometimes you work hard for something, but the doors do not open, while at other times, you work really hard for something, and doors do open.  What I do know is that some things are simply out of our hands.  Infertility aside, however, here I am . . . sixteen years after that 26th birthday, and I have three beautiful children, a loving husband, a beautiful house, and a nursing career that enables me to make a positive difference in the lives of my patients every day.  Life is good (not always easy, but good), and we live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  x o, Karli
