The best part of my day, hands down, was when Kathryn came home from work. We didn't do anything really special, as we have plans with friends on Saturday night. Instead, we ordered in a yummy Indian dinner, and we sat together, and lived.
I think that was the best birthday present of all. And the best part is I've had it every night for more than two years since she moved in with me. I get to spend my days with Kathryn, my partner for life. I get that present every single day. And I will so for the rest of my life, as the wedding oath goes.
So happy birthday to me. It is somewhat fitting that my birthday coincided with Rosh Hashanah. On a day in which we celebrate another year, and ask God for a year that is good and sweet... I truly got to enjoy another day of a good and sweet life.
Not too shabby.
