Every year our birthday gives us a time to reflect. Sometimes we're happy with where we find ourselves, other times we wish we would have accomplished more by this age… whatever age that is. It's part of life.
Often we complain about aging, getting older. But once you've known someone who never got the chance to get old, that changes. For me, when my brother, Michael and my friend, Jana each died before they had a chance to get old, I realized that I could not complain about getting older, in honor of them. They never got to be this old.
Sometimes life is fun, sometimes it's difficult. Some days are hard, some are easy. But onward we go, because, well, this is all we've got! We strive to keep a balance in life, aim to stay positive, and enjoy the time we have with the people we love. We continue to get older, because that's what we all do.
So, this is the oldest I've been yet, but I hope to get much older before I'm through.
Here's to a great year ahead!
