Perhaps that is an odd title for a birthday post, but I hope that, by the end of all of this, you will understand why I chose it.
Birthdays are a special time in people’s lives. It’s a date that signifies you have lived and survived through the scribblings of life. Birthdays bring the wonderful satisfaction of another chapter finished, a new one beginning. They give you the opportunity of reading back over the pages written and determining where you want to take your story. When you read back over the ink blots and flourishes, you find tales woven of accomplishments won, trials endured, people encountered, emotions felt, and all of this combined gives you a sense of the story that is being crafted.
