Well, another year is behind me. And despite my circumstances, there wasn’t a lot of contemplation about who I am, where I should be, why I didn’t get there, and what I’ll do differently as I approach the 45th year marker of my life. That’s quite something. Over the last several years, my birthday more than the holidays and New Year brings with it a sense of reflection. None of it’s ever good, either. So it was a bit of a relief to wake up and realize my kids were a LOT more excited than I was about my birthday, my wife was willing to let me be spoiled, and I really didn’t have anything to complain about. I can usually find something, if I want, but what the heck. It’s always possible to have it worse, I suppose, no matter how much better it could be. Thinking about it wouldn’t make it different. Being angry or depressed won’t change my circumstances, and while I can’t always push things aside and forget them, I was able to do that yesterday.
I got some very nice birthday wishes from many of you, and if I didn’t thank you where and when you made them, let me thank you now. I so appreciate all of you and the gifts you’ve been to me. God bless you.
Other than that, I really don’t have much to say today. I’ve got a lot of work to do on a project I’ve had on my plate for way longer than I should have, so I won’t be posting any tomes as I usually do. And if I’m not around commenting on your blogs very often, please forgive me. I’ve really got to get busy on this thing and time is a precious commodity, especially when January will have to bring renewed efforts on my job search. Be patient; I’ll be back when I can.
Thanks for all your support and caring. I appreciate it, and all of you. I hope your holiday was happy, blessed, and filled with the warmth and love only rivaled in Courier and Ives prints. 🙂
