Another year gone by

June 1, 2016 - 2:28pm
Well, it's that day again. I'm another year older (along with Morgan Freeman, Heidi Klum, Alanis Morissette and Amy Schumer). Somehow, birthdays seem to sneak up more quietly and a lot more quickly as the years go by. Though I often feel like I'm still 20 years old, I am most certainly not. But, with age comes wisdom and I definitely have the wisdom to know that getting older is way better than the alternative. Fair warning...emotional birthday musings ahead. I have known too many people who would have given anything to live long enough to have a wrinkle or a gray hair. I know too many families who had to say goodbye far, far too soon. I have experienced a random cardiac event that would have robbed me of any future birthdays if not for my implanted defibrillator. I have way too much perspective on not celebrating a birthday rather than blowing out what seems like a lot of candles. So I'll blow them out with a smile on my face and a grateful heart for being granted yet another year. Rather than worry about how old I'm getting, I'll eat another brownie made by my coworker, Jen (um...puppy chow brownies are seriously delicious), read well wishes from friends and family, enjoy a lovely dinner and reflect on the gift of another year. I'll look forward to my tomorrows and wonder what I should do with them. I will never take another birthday for granted but instead revel in simply being here to celebrate it.
