Yes it's true today is just another day, just like yesterday and probably just like tomorrow. And I have to say the number associated with each birthday has never bothered me--I even looked forward to last year (of course there was the big party weekend and I was still technically in my thirties-unofficially still 28). But when I woke up this morning and thought "Wow, I'm 41" (and don't ask me my weight-I'll leave that story to my crazy cousin "B") I paused and thought about it for 2.5 and then doubled over. The Big Guy put it in perspective-like he always does-when he replied "That's OK now your just 29."
A special birthday wish to my father-in-law who would have been 80 today--I missed your annual phone call and jokes about our shared birthday--I won't stop celebrating for both of us!
