My oldest son turns another year older tomorrow. I treated him to a great lunch today because he has school in the morning till late. We were sitting there talking, just him and I…when I told him “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” He looked at me and proceeded to tell me how he thought it was SO STUPID we celebrated getting another year older! He said it was a waste of time and that he’d rather be doing something else…like making money! I was quiet for a moment, which is very unusual for me….and I answered him by saying the following. ” We are celebrating life. Your life. Had you not been born, you would not be able to do ANYTHING! So, be happy and celebrate…DAMN IT!” I thought I was pretty clever, huh?

Believe in Yourself;

      My brother has to watch every move he makes from now on. He may need additional procedures, as time goes by. He is being closely monitored. Thanks for asking! Hope you are feeling better! UGH!
