This is a big one. I'm entering my sixth decade. I've never before had a birthday bother me, but I must confess this one did until last week. Suddenly I realized that instead of dreading it, I should be grateful. I'm alive. I'm healthy. And when I really thought about it I realized that nothing would change. Nothing! Life is wonderful and for the past 60 years it has done nothing but get better every year so why would I think that would stop? I'm expecting this sixth decade to be the best yet!
Not only that but so far the birthday celebrating has been amazing! Sunday Mariah cooked a marvelous vegetable lasagna for my birthday dinner. My mother came and Talena flew in from California to surprise me! Last night a group of students dropped by to sing Happy Birthday and then they sang for me (very beautifully) some songs a friend and I had written a number of years ago. One of the songs I'd never heard performed before. I was so touched by the fact that they would take the time to learn the songs and then come sing them to me. It was amazing.
Wow! I really do think I'm going to like the 60s!
You can leave me a birthday gift here. Just make a comment telling me what you consider the greatest accomplishment of your life. Don't hold back. Don't be shy. Tell me about how great your life is. I really want to hear it.
