As I was leaving my evening class today to celebrate my little birthday with my family, my professor wished me a happy birthday and asked me my age. Truthfully I couldn’t recall my exact age; therefore, I exaggerated a bit and told her that I am fifty. She looked surprised, but believed so.
At this point of my life, I am just thankful to have a loving, supporting family. I am enjoying being a father more than I did a few years ago. I am adapting to the parenting environment. I love spending time with the boys. Each brings a special joy to me. They help me overcome obstacles in life. I am learning not to take myself too seriously, especially in my profession and education.
I am in the process of reconsidering my priorities. I want to simplify my life and have just a few choices rather than everything I want to accomplish. Time slips away way too fast. I need to just narrow down my path and live a worry-free life. I am sure the next thirty five years would go by in a blink of an eye.
