Birthdays and such

I was making a birthday cake today and was reminded of how when I was young I thought nobody had a birthday in March besides me. No one in my extended family at least. And now, all these years later, we have four of them. Yet another example of the way that life changes with age. It seems as though so many things change as the years go by.perspective is just one of them.

Things that I thought were so important years ago seem minor now. At the same time, things that I barely gave a thought to then are now so much more important to me.

I appreciate the wisdom and perspective of age. I just wish it didn't have to come with the accompanying aches and pains....
