Rites of Passage

Today is my birthday - I am 55 years old. I am finally a grown up. It didn't happen when I was fifteen and I left home. It didn't happen when I was twenty-five and met my true love. Neither did it happen when I had my first child at twenty-seven. Nor when I had my fifth at forty-four. It just suddenly happened on the long stroll up to fifty-five. It feels good!

L'chaim! To life - I hope you all have a wonderful birthday day.
