My 36th Year

Yesterday was my 36th birthday and I got everything I never knew I always wanted.  I didn't even need to make a wish before I blew out my candles.

A dinner out with a handsome man.  A long, relaxing, reviving run.  Children trying their best.  Hugs and kisses.  Homemade cards.  Mom's famous carrot cake.  Thoughtful gifts.  Time with family.  Playing outside.  Sleeping in.   
Thirty six is off to a great start.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
