"I'll have that thirty-two Bob"
Well, today I turn 32.
It's hard to believe that I have now reached the point in life where I have been legaly able to drive for half of my life, tomorrow it will be for more than half.
This is my first birthday as a father. As well as my first birthday as a homeowner.
This is my Second birthday as a husband.
I have now celebrated two birthdays since I left the Police and three since I got engaged.
I have now celebrated 14 birthdays since coming to Israel.
As a child, I recall thinking about getting older, 32 seemed so far away. The truth is that I still remember as a kid trying to figure out how old I'll be at the Millenium, "26, wow, I'll be old". The millenium seemed so far away in the 80's, especially from a child's perspective.
It's actually funny that I'm writing this on my blog because I'm not a big birthday person. I generally dont tell people when it happens. If you know, you know, and if not, it doesnt bother me. No one in my office has a clue and only family and a few close friends call me up to wish me a happy birthday from all over the globe.
Last year, I even got a call from a friend who was in Australia.
I don't feel any different today than any other day. Don't feel older.
The question is should I feel any different?
What do u all think about celebrating your own birthday? do you feel yourself getting older? do you think that it's just a natural part of life?
Thanks for reading...
