Another Birthday

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Thank you for all the wonderful and creative birthday wishes. You amaze me and I’m thankful for your friendship.

I was positive some sage advice and words of wisdom would come my way, but alas, I am at a loss. Suffice to say I am a fortunate person and have grown to relish the simple joys of life. I never aspired to amass monetary wealth. For me, the richness of life comes from a myriad of people, places and things.

The substance of my being comes from my children, grandchildren, wife, family, best friends, friends, acquaintances and those who touch me on a daily basis. Each day I ask that we show just one act of kindness to others.The images in my mind and memories created throughout a lifetime have shaped me into a lover of nature, animals and water. I can’t breathe without the ocean, Lake Ontario or the Saint Lawrence Seaway. I need water like an oligarch needs their billions of dollars. Finally, my savings bank is full and earning interest each time I gaze upon the plants, trees, animals, and wonderful home I’ve been so fortunate to thoroughly enjoy with every ounce of who I am.

Yes…today I had the joy of another birthday and realize just how privileged my life has been.

Thank you for celebrating this special day with me.
