Great to have another birthday

It is just after midnight, so technically it is now my birthday. I am 38 years old. I feel very blessed to be here. The past year has been filled with trauma and pain and uncertainty about my future. But it was also filled with joy and miracles. I grew closer to many family members. I grew closer to God. I have learned to appreciate some things more than ever before, such as nature, our amazing bodies, the kindness and generosity of people. I now have a greater capacity to empathize with those having physical distress. Yes, this past year was the most difficult of my life, but it was also one of the greatest. I am grateful to all who helped me though this.

Cheers, and here is hoping I have many many more birthdays to come!
