I was looking at company in which I am in regards to this day in history. I was directed by my wife over to HistoryOrb.com and found out some interesting things about my Birthday. Some are listed above, the list was too long to post the whole thing. It is interesting that in '73 Watergate was happening. So I am 38 today. That makes me 2 years close to 40 (no big deal) and almost 4 decades old. I think that our journey's through life are very interesting ones. I for one am happy and content and glad of mine. I have a wonderful family. I have a good job and I am trying to work towards what God wants of me. Which for the most part I do not know what that is. But I am trying to figure that out and make it a reality. So some interesting things happen each day of our life. Some are associated with our Birthday and the rest are associated with everyone else's Birthday.
So today we had a snow fall that made driving difficult. I did not sleep well due to too much heat and overtired. And to top it all off I have to go to work. Which is okay, since I am very happy to have a job and one I enjoy. Also I have lost over 50 pounds in the last year by watching what I eat and keeping active. I can only have a great Birthday today. And I am having a Great Birthday. Every day I am alive is a great day, no matter what comes my way.
So Happy Birthday to Everyone who is having a Birthday. Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday and all through the year.
