Birthday Reflections

Well, today is my birthday.  It has been a good day.  Throughout the day, I have been checking Facebook and all of my wonderful friends have been wishing me a happy birthday all day.  My phone and Facebook are having a failure to communicate, which means not all the notifications came through on my phone, but I have gotten them on Facebook.  Thank you!

I’ve thought about the various things that have happened on and around the date of my birth.

Today is the date that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.  I was reminded of that this morning while listening to our Christian radio station.

Seven years ago, on August 29th, Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans.  As I write, Hurricane Issac is knocking on the door of New Orleans.  Last year, Hurricane Irene was making itself known over the Shenandoah Valley.  It was primarily a rain event.

Six year’s ago I wrote a short and funny post about the “Smell of Love.” In just a few days, I will be celebrating my third anniversary of running.  But I think about how I felt three years ago.  I literally thought my body was falling apart. Now, I feel younger than I did 6 or 7 years ago.  I’ll share more about that on Friday.

Again thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes.  Pressing On!
