I believe in celebration.

I believe in celebrating birthdays.
I believe each birthday should be celebrated to it's full extent. I don't understand people who don't party their birthday away. A birthday is the date of entry into the world —  but each subsequent year is worth even more celebration. Each year marks new goals accomplished and new adventures...so celebrate!

People of our time are losing the power of celebration. Instead of celebrating we see to be amused or entertained. Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation. To be entertained is a passive state — it is to receive pleasure afforded by an amusing act or spectacle...Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one's actions. — Abraham Joshua Heschel

Well, today is Husband's 27th birthday and it is definitely reason to celebrate.

Nick, you are the most amazing person I have ever met. You are an inspiration to me and so many others — just by being you, with your motivation, dedication and simple smiles. This past year has been an adventure and every year it just keeps getting better and better. I wish blessings upon you today and for this new year. May you have much happiness, many successes and fresh adventures — I look forward to traveling alongside you.

Happy birthday soul mate.
