As I reflect and celebrate the day of my birth also on a Thursday, April 21st, I begin to feel God’s blessings of wisdom in my life beginning to take hold. Of course, I’ll likely look back in 5 years and think I knew little today, but as of right now, I really feel that I’m coming into my own right now.
I’m so very delighted about each and every blessing that has me where I am today: my health, love, patience, humility, strength, positive energy, being a great father, a loving wife, having great parents, a family I heart, caring inlaws, a successful business and the list goes on and on.
I do get the sense that life’s experiences have begun to have more meaning and significance. I truly feel that I’m not only learning now but as a dad, I’m now beginning to teach and to do so, means that I’ve got to have the knowledge down the right way in order to relay it accurately.
I would not be here today, had it not been in God’s plan. So I’m grateful for the gift I’m given, in this present moment. I pray that if it is His will, that I will live a long, happy, and healthy life.
If I am able to enjoy the next 34 years, I hope that I can dedicate much of that time to capitalizing on the legacy of my dad and grandmother left me and my generation to follow, by planting the seeds of love in those that have none.
For my friends and family, I thank you for your love, support and nurturing me to be the Stephen I am today.
