I am halfway to 70. It feels strange, yet good at the same time.
For a little bit of perspective on how the world has changed in 35 years… I’m sure my Dad will correct me if I have the details incorrect, but the story goes something like this…
When I was born, my Dad was in the army and stationed in Okinawa, Japan. My birth certificate is unique: “American citizen born abroad.” I don’t dare lose it because getting another copy is a nightmare. My Dad said my birth cost him around $9 out of pocket. Of course, he had to make sure I knew that as we were shelling out a thousand or two for the birth of our kids. The funny part though is that the three minute phone call back to the States to tell my grandparents about my birth cost more than the hospital bill, and the phone connection wasn’t even that great. Now you can video chat with someone halfway across the world for free.
I’m incredibly thankful to be living during this amazing time in history. I’m especially thankful for you! So in honor of my birthday, I’m throwing a bloggy party, and the gifts are for you!! Leave a comment below to say Hi or Happy Birthday :). I have lots to give away. Take a look! Feel free to share with your friends too. Your friends are my friends 🙂
