48 years ago today…

This is one of my earliest pictures.  I am being held by a woman named Nelly.  Nelly was like a mom to my mom and like a grandmother to me,  my brother and sister.

Birthdays are always a time of reflection for me.  I reflect on the life that I have lived and the previous year in particular.

My 47th year has been amazing and I am looking forward to my 48th year. 

This year I have made so many new and wonderful friends that have enhanced my life in every way.

I have moved into a beautiful new space with my precious dog Courtney.

I have run 10 half marathons (2 more are scheduled before the end of this year).

I have been taking conversion classes with Rabbi Sally at Temple Isaiah.

I am grateful for all that I have…and I am looking forward to being 48!
