I turn a year older today. Taller, maybe smarter, not necessarily wiser, more mischievous but a lot less cute than the little girl in this photo. I don't really have any wild epiphanies or big revelations to mark this day. Just a simple thought and prayer, hoping that by being present right at this very moment, I've somehow changed someone's life or made it a bit bearable at least. If not yet, I hope I can continue striving to inspire and allow others to do the same for me. Isn't that enough reason to stay and say, thank You for another day, another chance to be a better person?
