My Wordless Birthday

Smooth Sailing


My Thanksgiving Birthday Wish

Every five to six and sometimes as many as eleven years, my birthday falls on Thanksgiving. The day most Americans get together with their family and friends to over indulge on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams etc.  And of course to rejoice and feel thankful for whatever is important.  For me, this year I get to celebrate both Thanksgiving and my life at the same time.

Even though I am another year older and wiser; there are still a lot of things in life that seem so uncertain and difficult to understand. But one thing is for sure… time flies quickly regardless if you are having fun or not. Though, I’m glad to say — on this cloudy thankful day, I had a lot of fun doing what I love. So here is my Thanksgiving Birthday wish…

“May the wind always be at my back and the sun upon my face.
And may the winds of destiny carry me aloft to dance with the stars.”

Me, Myself, and I…

Another year, another birthday for me to reflect on my life — as if I don’t do enough of that throughout the year. 😉 Birthdays for me is more like taking a yearly inventory of myself: the new gray hair sprouting from my head; or seeing new laugh lines that I don’t find funny.

And of course the review of my accomplishments or lack thereof — like a video player: Play, rewind, fast-forward, stop… and SKIP.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. For most people who celebrates the tradition; it is a day that everyone has a free pass to over indulge on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce etc… and be Thankful. So… what are you thankful for? I am thankful my birthday is a day before Thanksgiving — because instead of one day free pass to over indulge — I get two days. Yes! 😀

Okay… seriously, I am very thankful my boys are growing into fine young men. And that life is good even at times when it seems impossible.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! And eat like there is no tomorrow…  🙂
