|GT and his cat, Felix The Cat.
I think as one grows older these special markers of time start to become less frivolous and centered around fun and more serious and considered. I suppose that is only natural. At one time I would have expected a cake, candles to blow out, and presents.Then later on in life I might have thought I should expect drinks, a card or two, and some frivolity with friends. Now?
I just want to spend time with my immediate family, and then a bike ride on top of that might be nice. I think that's exactly what I'll do.
It's another day, in the grand scheme of things, and what I do maybe doesn't really matter in the end when it comes to the 23rd of January. But it is my day, and I will mark it as long as I can.
Hopefully you all out there have a spectacular day and are able to do something meaningful today. Not because it is "my day", but because this day is a gift to you. Make sure you unwrap it and try to give thanks for the things that bless you, because we aren't guaranteed to see another one of these come our way.
Thanks for reading.
