It's My Birthday!

Nothing constructive results from meeting anger with anger; nobody wins the battle in which control is lost. (One Day At A Time in Al-Anon, 18 April)

The best way to destroy today is to regret "yesterday" and worry about "tomorrow." (Warren W. Wiersbe, Chapter-By-Chapter Bible Commentary)


Today is my 71st birthday. There have been many times when I doubted I'd see this day. I'm grateful to good doctors and other health professionals who guided and cared for me during the difficult times. Our daughter, Cyndi, took the day off from work today. She will take us out to eat lunch at the Edgewater, near Annapolis, where we will celebrate my birthday and Mother's Day.

On Thursday I attended the computer club meeting. The guest speaker was Tavon Jones, Apple Computer consultant at the Best Buy store in Annapolis, Maryland. This was the second time he came to speak to the group. He gave another outstanding talk. He brought along the new Apple IPad and passed it around for everyone to look at. Someone donated some items. I brought home a copy of the Broderbund Screen Capture program which should install on my Windows 2000 operating system.

Happy Birthday! 71 isn't old anymore, 100 years ago it was considered old but today you are just a spring chicken. Looking forward to reading more of your blog postings.
