Today is my 50th birthday. It’s a milestone that bothers some people more than others. For me it is just a number. Inside I still feel about 27. It is a time for reflection, not to see things one cannot change but just to acknowledge how far I have traveled in this life of mine and how happy I am to be where I am, living the life I am. I count having the world’s greatest spouse, aka, my best friend, as one of the biggest blessings in my life and the reason I wake up every day with a smile on my face.

I am marking the day with nothing special, since it’s a work day, but I would like to copy something that

  did a few months ago to mark her birthday. She asked for people to share a special memory. I thought that was a wonderful way to celebrate life so I will ask the same.

If you happen to be coming by here and have a few minutes to spare, would you please help me celebrate my birthday by sharing a special memory with me? It doesn’t have to be long. (And it doesn’t have to be about me.)

Thank you.
