Just a few short weeks ago I thought that this would be a dismal Birthday. But instead when I was showering this morning I cried some tears of joy. My health is finally stabilizing, my spirits are better and I have renewed hopes about the general interest in my books. I have been happy about all the kind Birthday wishes today too! I am feeling blessed today to have so many nice, thoughtful friends and family members. I am vowing to continue to learn and grow and I am still hopeful about regaining my strength, stamina and balance.
