Today is a good day for a celebration!
Since every day and every hour we have is a gift, it's a good idea to stop every now and again and celebrate that. I know it's easy to complain about the aging process. "I can't do what I used to a few years ago when I was younger." "I forget more and sleep less." "The years are going too quickly, and I still have so much I want to get done." "I have so many aches and pains I didn't have before." On and on we go.
But, still, we are here. We are alive. And much more than that for most of us—we have family, friends, worthwhile work whether paid or volunteer or that we assign to ourselves at home, food, shelter and more. It's a privilege to age.
Isn't that worth celebrating? Isn't that cause for gratitude? Yup, I think so, too.
What kind of party are you throwing for yourself today?
