I just turned 50 on January 29th and I have to admit it was fun. Whatever I thought 50 would feel like . . . well . . . it doesn't! I am just amazed I have been alive for 50 years. There have been a lot of changes in the world during that time. Anyway, I'm not going to get sentimental.
My birthday celebration began when our church surprised me during worship with a brand new guitar. Didn't see that coming! Then Nancy surprised me by inviting my parents and sister from D.C.. I also got an extra day off on the deal.
On the actual day my three children and wife surprised me a list of 50 things they love about me. I won't bore you with them all but here are a few:
*His love for crabs - eating them
*His love of M&Ms
*His desire to live to 100
*His facebook status
*His love of "Hockey pucks" and "Pineapple whips" at Disneyland
*His genuine laughter
*His love of cream-filled doughnuts and Suzy Qs
*His uncanny ability to dust off his trumpet and play Christmas carols annually with no practice all year
*He loves his wife and children
I feel loved!
