Today was my birthday.
Usually it's just another day. A day when it was fun just to sit back and watch everyone celebrate at my expense. Until now...
I have been overwhelmed today. I normally get up and start answering messages and always prided myself in talking to each one. Last year it was hard. This year, impossible. I slept in late and by the time I got up my phone was blowing up, FB had was unmanageable and calls were piling up. I had intended to go to do some work, make a few sales calls and line up a couple of meetings. But that wa snot to be not that I am complaining. I am just plain astounded and humbled!
I did manage to answer every text and phone call. I also liked every post on FB. It was nice walk down memory lane. I looked at each one and tried to remember where we met. Some I didn't know but took a moment to look at the page and the face in hopes that one day we might run into each other. So many long time friends who we'd lost touch with over the years and current friends and ones yet to be made.
Thanks for making life special each and every day! I am blessed!
I don't really feel older. I am proud to say I'm still playing with a full deck. I just don't shuffle as often!
You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. ~Douglas MacArthur
