Today is a special day. It's my birthday and it's also Elvis Presley's birthday.
Uh, Thank you. Uh, Thank you very much!
I'm not wearing a tight white jumpsuit today or gold wired sunglasses and I'm not wearing my hair slicked back. And I'm not suggesting that I can sing or act but I do find it a lot of fun that Elvis and I share a birthday because as I was growing up it would always be in the news that Elvis was having a birthday on my birthday and of course his was always a bigger celebration!

Today I am so happy to be having a birthday because there was a time when I was much younger when I burned the candle at both ends (kind of like Elvis) and did some reckless things that today make me close my eyes and thank my guardian angel for watching over me.
So I am here today, pretty much all in one piece, counting my lucky stars and thanking the Lord above for all of the many, many blessings that I have in my precious life. I have no idea what the future holds for me but I am enthusiastic about jumping into each new day and continuing to embrace my wondrous journey.
