Today I Gotta Feeling

When I opened my eyes this morning, it did not feel like it was a particularly different or special day. Then several hours later, my daughter woke up beside me, looked into my eyes, and said, “Mommy, it is ok that you are older, what is important is that you are alive and healthy and you have got me and we have a house to live in, food to eat and everything else.”

For the past several days, she was like, “Mommy it is your birthday soon!” And I always respond with it is not a big deal. She asked me why I do not like my birthday, I told her because I will get a year older again.

I suppose today is as good a day as any to celebrate life, eh? I am thankful for so many things and I know I have to work a little harder to see the glass half full instead of empty. October 16 is still just another day, but I do admit I do feel a little more special than usual. Thank you to all those who have taken time to greet me.

I will take this opportunity to start again. Now where do I begin?
