I just turned 31 last Nov 28. For someone who was told that he might not reach the age of 30, this is certainly a milestone. I consider this my first “bonus” year.
The past year has been both good and bad. Good in the sense that I’m still around, bad that I feel I’m 31 and still have very little to show for it.
I am happy about somethings, I’ve done several interesting things, got featured in some TV shows, met interesting people who turned out to become good friends.
Bad because there are things that happened this year that are sad. I won’t dwell on it too much though.
I honestly have a lot to be thankful for. Another year has passed, I’m still around to enjoy life. My family is relatively healthy, I still have money (however little it is) in my bank account, new friends, my treatments are still continuing. All in all great blessings.
I do have some birthday wishes…
A friend asked me what my birthday wish for this year was, I answered that there’s a special person in my life that is sick right now. I wish him well and hope that he gets through this trial. That’s what I want right now more than anything else. Well, ok apart from the continued well being of my parents and brother but apart from that I’m good.
So on that note, God, thanks for another year. I’m hoping I’ll be able to write another post for my 32nd birthday and the many more years after that.
