This past year has been an amazing journey and at some points, I feared this birthday. I panicked and wondered, “Shouldn’t I be (fill in the blank)?” Or “I would be happier if (fill in the blank).” The truth for me today is that I am okay with exactly where I am – in love with my husband, true love for my children, appreciation for my family, and deep gratitude for the opportunity to work with courageous colleagues who share a commitment and passion for the Jewish community. But there is more, I also found joy in writing, meditating, learning, and trying very hard to make the most out of each moment.
On Glee tonight, Blaine sings Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.”
Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good timeI feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time
I'm a shooting star leaping through the skiesLike a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me
There is more, but you get the point. No coincidences, this is my theme song for the day, maybe the year. I am looking forward to the day and the celebrations with my family and friends.
Happy Birthday to me!
