Another Year Over Another Year Ahead! :)

Tomorrow will be my Birthday! I love birthdays, except when I am the center of attention; however, I do enjoy the over exaggerated celebration and heralded birthday greetings from family and friends, some whom I haven't heard from in years.

My birthday though is my own special internal compass day when I look at where I have been in my life, things I have done, goals I still have and where I want to be when I die! If I was standing on the ruler of my life, I would be at the midway point. Am I happy? YOU BET I AM!!! Could I be a better person? I am a good person but I can always be a better person!!! Am I fulfilled in every aspect of my life? Yes and no. Yes, in that I am fulfilled; and no because there is more fulfillment to come. I Am In Love with Life itself and I feel so blessed and grateful to have this small place in the gigantic quantum of galaxies and space known as earth to live on. I am blessed to know God and to also know that when I kneel down to pray in the morning , in the evening, or while driving in my car, that He listens to me. I feel grateful to have a a strong feeling, reverence and love for Jesus Christ, my Savior and your Savior!

I found '39 Things I have Learned In My Life', from off the Internet which so applies to me and I would like to pass it on since I am in total agreement with Michelle R. Brennan, and I couldn't say it any better!
