Fiftieth Birthday

My fiftieth birthday party was a precious time. Friends and family arrived at our house at different times during the day. There was lots of food and chatter throughout the afternoon and evening.
We spread ourselves all over the house. I thought of how blessed I was. I had all of these people in my life. We remembered my childhood, teenage and university years. We also thought about years of marriage, work, and parenthood.
Fifty years is 18,262 days. What a lot of days. What a lot of memories. My birthday party helped me to count those days and to understand them too.
