Great advice and a positive spin on how many of us seeing getting older as something negative. Yes, there will be the aches and pains as our bodies begin to wear down, but there is indeed so much more to be thankful and grateful for.
Thanks for sharing!
This is so sad. I'm glad it's not autobiographical. I love the way you used the repetition to really make the day feel ordinary. Habitual, almost. It's so true. A birthday fades without someone to share it with. Nice work.
