Regardless of how quickly the year flew by, it has been a noteworthy one, indeed. It brought wonderful changes and experiences. To name a few:
- The arrival of Ely and the transition from couple to family
- More time than usual with mom and dad
- Taking a job that doesn't include a salary, but for which I'm paid every single day in smiles and hugs.
- Meeting new friends and having more time to catch up with old friends
I'm glad to have lived my 28th year and look forward to my 29th. I don't feel any sadness about the encroaching big 3-0! I'm thrilled to have made it this far and grateful for what my life has turned out to be. As none of us has tomorrow assured, I'll be happy for each day this year.
If I could make one birthday wish, it would be to have North and South America be just a little closer together. (God, please take note: I'd prefer this be achieved without another earthquake!)
If that's out of the question, how about world peace?
If I had to, I'd settle for the addition of a direct flight to DC or BWI.
Happy 29th birthday to me. Happy 29th Anniversary of parenthood to my dear parents. And happy June 5th to you!
