39 and the World is Mine

Yesterday I celebrated my 39th birthday. Can you believe it? I really can't.

Now - okay - it would be really easy to start saying "39! I'm getting old! Look at these wrinkles, and my hair is going gray! And that's not all - my knees ache. It's just awful!"

But here's the surprise: I'm not going to do that. Instead, I am going to focus on all of the miles I have traveled during my 39 years and be thankful that I am still alive. I know that growing older is a blessing - not everyone is as lucky as I am - and it is up to me to remember that. I'm not saying this will be an easy attitude to maintain, but there you go.

In honor of my birthday, I am working on a special project. I'll have to say more about that later, though. (It's requiring a lot of though and, because of everything else that's going on, I'm not quite done.) Stay tuned . . .
