Where has October gone? I must admit it was a little uneventful except of course celebrating my birthday a few days ago. It was a simple gathering of family and close friends but it was fun. No birthday of course is complete without all these pictures. Nissa actually took several shots, she was our photographer of the day but uploading them all here is a bit impractical. Nate enjoyed our simple celebration at home playing with my friends and showing off. We all laughed when he finished those plates of spaghetti ignoring the other viands served on the table. He enjoyed blowing the little candle on the tiny birthday cake which Josef bought for me. It is always fun when you are with friends and family.
Does life really begins at sixty? The past days, I thought of how it is any different from when I was 40 or when I turned 59. Maybe, it is really not in the number of years that life matters. It’s how one looks at it , it’s how one thinks that the added years somehow make one grow and gets wiser. The comfort of knowing that one is blessed and loved, the days spent with family and friends knowing that they are always there through thick and thin, the happy moments of endless sharing….what bliss!
