I woke up today knowing that I most likely have fewer sunrises in front of me than those I’ve left behind. In 48 years, I have experienced some amazing peaks and a few very deep valleys. Each have left their mark, with some more evident than others. I have felt the cold of the darkness and the warmth of the light; yet through all of it, love has and continues to be the most powerful force in changing lives. Lack of love can lead to despair, while its presence can elevate a lost soul.
This year, my birthday wish is for each and everyone of you to give and receive love without judgement or expecting anything in return. It will make a difference in at least one person’s life…and sometimes that is all that is needed.
