59 and counting

I am 59 today!

Am I older and wiser than I was yesterday?

Or maybe I will be next year on my sixtieth birthday, the big one?

I always feel excited on my birthday, though I am not a child anymore

I think that this excitement comes from the realization

That I am still alive, still able to enjoy my life

That whatever life throws at me, I will eventually cope

I am grateful to be able to live till I am no longer

I should make the best of my today and tomorrows

For I don’t know how many have been granted to me

  1. Happy Birthday again, Sadje! I hope you celebrate it vigorously! All birthdays should be, IMO. It marks the day of your arrival and continued life; this is why it should be honored! The fact that you get to tell life one more year it wasn’t successful in taking you down is cause to celebrate. 🙂 Enjoy, dear friend!
