Happy Birthday ... to Me!

Today is my 57th birthday!

Some people hate birthdays. To them, it’s a grim reminder that they are getting older. Teenagers and kids love birthdays because it means they are getting older. I love every birthday as I feel it is a celebration of my having spent another year on this good earth.

Long ago I decided that I would never work on my birthday and I never have. It doesn’t matter what I do on my birthday, I am not going to celebrate my day from work.

It’s my day to do what I want ... my day to have some fun.

When I was 17, my father passed away. He was only 47.

That, more than anything, made me realize that we all only have a limited number of birthdays in us and we don’t know what that limit is.

So when your birthday comes, celebrate the day! You never know when your “best before” date will pass.

I am!
