Yesterday was my birthday and and I looked forward all day to my birthday dinner. We went to our club and even though it was gloomy and cool, still were able to sit on the patio with the beautiful golf course in the background. I had received a call earlier in the day from Megan, so that made me happy too. Having Melissa here for my birthday dinner and being able to share a glass of wine with her, also made the evening special.
I try to look at birthdays now philosophically; they come every year and there is no stopping them, so one might as well be happy with the age they are at. There is a lot to look forward to in the years ahead and my life is good. Today is just like yesterday, even though I'm one year older. And it's so true; you are as young as you feel, and when I'm out walking with my puppy pulling me along at our usual brisk pace, I feel pretty young. And, that's a good place to be on your birthday.
