Today I celebrated my 45th birthday. I don't usually keep track of exactly how old I am, though I seem to love each new year I turn. With each year, I feel more confident in myself and my abilities. It's sad how we waste so much of our youth on being self-conscious, concerned about what others will or will not think of us. I love the person I'm becoming, which changes with new knowledge and experience each day of my life. I truly appreciate the little positive things in life and the irreplaceable people I know. I receive so much love from my family and friends and even our animals. There is so much to be grateful for in life. Today, as I reflect on Renvek Larson, one of my favorite little people, I remember the ability to grow old is a privilege denied to many. I am thankful for all the birthday wishes and wish you all another year of wonder too!
