It’s my birthday week! (Yeah, it’s a thing 🎉) And I’ve been feeling extra grateful for these two and the sweet man behind the camera who puts up with me when I make demands like, “no a little straighter, no stand back, higher, higher.” (😂) As my dad would so kindly tell me, I’m almost half-way to 70 (😏) and if I’ve learned anything in these past few years it’s that life is such a gift. .
Whenever my father-in-law prays before a family meal, he thanks God for another day of life, “otra día de vida.” Maybe that’s why most Guatemalans see life as a gift, and not a guarantee. And that’s kind of how I feel about this birthday. .
I don’t know why 35 feels somewhat significant, but it does. So I’m committed to celebrating it, sharing it and doing all that I can to be the kind of person who makes my corner of the world a kinder, cleaner and safer place for all of us ❤️
