Birthdays as a Time to Reflect
I am approaching my 48th Birthday on Saturday. Besides New Years Resolutions, birthdays provide a time for reflection in one's life. I appreciate life to the fullest. This year, I witnessed some of the greates natural disasters recorded. Tornadoes in Alabama and Missouri, flooding in Tennessee and Mississippi, and tsunamis in Japan. I can imagine having built the dream home, only to have Mother Nature take it all away. My son just turned 22 and finished a job training program. My daughter will attending Howard University in the fall. My wife and I have been married for 23 years. It has been tough financially. I share this same condition with millions of Americans. Perseverance is the name of the game. I wish a Happy Birthday to anyone sharing my day on July 23rd. Let's make the next 365 days the best ever.
