Happy MONDAY! TGIM! QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Your birthday is the beginning of your own personal new year. Your first birthday was a beginning, and each new birthday is a chance to begin again, to start over, to take a new grip on life.” — Wilfred Peterson THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It’s my birthday week!! WAHOO! Get excited!! My birthday is on Thursday, November 11th and I get the day off of work in conjunction with Veteran’s Day. I would like to take a moment to reflect and thank all those who have served our country. Also thanks to my Mom and Dad for coordinating everything like it happened so that I could be born. Additional thanks to Mom and Dad for having me born on Veteran’s Day. And thanks to God the Father Almighty for creating me the way I am. I have a birthday run planned, as well as a birthday bike ride, followed by a RIDE at RIDE Indoor Cycling, and then am treating myself to a massage. Yes, I am one of those people who loves celebrating their birthday. On this amazing Monday let’s celebrate life. Because every day is a gift. We don’t know when we might die. But I do know when I was born, and it’s this week.
