Today is my birthday and it doesn't feel like it. I got all kinds of calls and emails and messages on Facebook with people hoping that I was doing something special or doing something relaxing or doing something really nice for myself. But I wasn't - I was scrambling to get a year's worth of expenses and income to the CPA so that she could do our taxes so that we could get a pre-authorization letter.
So it's not a birthday that will go down as one of the best, but it may go down as one of the most memorable. Because though it wasn't relaxing, it was full of movement and energy and hope and excitement. And really, a birthday is about celebrating being alive and today, I certainly felt that.
