I'll be off the calendar after today. That is the common joke. But God is gracious to get me past the numbers in the calendar. I look back and could not think of anything extra ordinary that I made to make myself special. Then somebody reminded me that it is not myself who should make myself special when my daughter said, "Dad, you are special." It is the people around me who believes I am special that makes me special.
God loves each one of us and that makes each one of us special. So I do not have to worry about making my day special today. The people around me did it and will do it. Their presence and the thoughtfulness already makes me feel special. Thanks for all the blessings. God is good.
