We are coming up on one of my favorite times of year. In our family we have a birthday season. It runs from late July through early September when we celebrate the arrival of our three kids. I typically refer to them as even and odd years. This year is an even year and as our oldest turns turns 16, the boy turns 12, and our baby hits double digits and turns 10.
This time of year always makes me think about how quickly time pass and about how each moment can be so full, but fleeting. These kids are a huge part of why I do what I do. I need to be physical, mentally, and emotionally prepared to ensure I can meet my duty to them. The best version of ourselves is the most important, life long gift we can give our kids…. well, that and donuts. They love donuts on their birthday.
