Is 34 My 33?

Today is my birthday. I’m 34 years old. Birthdays are odd. I know logically that I’m 34 but I don’t feel like I’m supposed to be 34. It isn’t hard for me to remember turning 21 so it doesn’t feel that it was THAT long ago. However, logically I know it was 13 years old. 13 years seems like a long time, but if it were that long ago, then how can I remember it so well?

I remember my mother turning 34. My mother. I was a child and thinking how grown up my mother was. You may wonder why my mother turning 34 sticks out in my brain. I recall it because she always said 33 was her favorite year. I’m not sure why she loved 33 so much. I just know that when she turned 34, she said 33 was great so I think I’ll stay there. Even now, she says she is 33.

I don’t think I have had my 33 yet. I’ve had lots of wonderful blessings but I don’t think I’ve had that year where I say “you know what, life was so great this year, I think I’ll stay right here”. 

Maybe 34 will be my 33? 


  1. Happy Birthday!! You've got me thinking... what would be my 33? I'm not sure if I've hit it yet. I've had plenty of good years, but my favorite year ever... hmmm maybe it'll end up being 34 :)

  2. Happy belated birthday! Here's hoping this is your 33--and every year after is your 33, too!
