Today is my birthday. It isn't one of those milestone birthdays, you know - 30, 40, 50 etc., that have "year specific" cards. It's simply a regular birthday. But it is a special one for me. I've learned over the last few years to embrace every day and every birthday as special and a blessing.
While I don't feel my chronological age, it is a fact. It's right there on all my important documents. And I'm sure my birth year is not a surprise to anyone perusing said documents!
Later this morning, I will happily drive myself to my dialysis center. That in itself is a blessing. I see so many of my fellow dialysis patients who do not have the level of independence and, dare I say it, the level of "good health" I currently enjoy.
So, today is a day of celebration. And I intend to do just that. Celebrate all the many blessings of my life.
