Birthdays. The cliche is true – as you age, they do become (seemingly) less and less important.

However, this year’s birthday is more prominent, compelling, and motivating. Given the personal events of the past ten days (a hospital stay and emergency gallbladder surgery), I feel a greater urge to cherish family, friends, and the opportunity to work and serve.

So here’s to you, birthday – old buddy, old pal! Thanks for reminding me of all I should be grateful for!
