Well as some know by now, It's my birthday. I'm now over 50. I'm getting older, I wish I was saying that I was getting wiser. I may not be getting smarter but this is what I've learned:

That's weird, I don't remember being absent-minded.

If all is not lost, then where is it?

I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart. One time, I was reaching for the shampoo in the shower and pulled a muscle in my back.

I started out with nothing and I still have most of it. Ironically enough, that doesn't bother me like it did when I was younger.

As many know, I'm a Christ follower. Now that I'm another year older, I spend more and more time thinking about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something and then wonder what I'm HERE AFTER.

As many people know, my daughter Tara shares my birthday. She told me how special it is to share a birthday with me and that not everyone is so lucky. It is very special to me for sure.

It's hard to believe that she's a teenager now. I had someone tell me recently that they remember the day that I announced that Tara was born. They couldn't believe that was13 years ago already.

I also share my birthday with my sister Michelle and my Uncle Dale. If you do the math, then you know how the Pitcher's spend Valentine's Day.
