Happy Thirty-Whatever by Djibouti Jones

Tomorrow I’ll be thirty-five. Zabuur (Psalm) 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we might gain a heart of wisdom.” So here I am, numbering my days, perhaps not aright-ly, but numbered nonetheless.

I eat like I’m five – jelly beans from Lucy’s stash, cookies, chocolate chips from the bag mom sent from Minnesota, peanut butter licked off a spoon, and no carrots. Unless I’m trying to set a good example or Tom makes me. Stinker.

So I run like I’m twenty-five – lots of miles and the belief that my body is indestructible – but at the pace of someone who is sixty-five.
