Birthday Wishes & Christmas Greetings
One of the cool things about having your own blog is that you can always send a “shout out” to anyone you want. Can’t always do that on TV without coming across as self-serving and perhaps a bit pompous.
With that in mind, I want to wish my wife, Sharon, a Happy Birthday. Being a smart husband who wants to be welcomed back into his home at day’s end, I’m not going to say how old she is. Let’s just say she has lived a lot of life but still has plenty more ahead of her. I do want to let her know that while birthdays are often for looking back and reflecting on what we’ve accomplished and where we’ve been, they should also be about looking forward to what lies ahead. Remember honey, we can only affect the future.
She is also a Christmas baby. January 7th is Christmas in the orthodox church and my wife’s is Serbian. She usually spends the holiday with her family in Vegas, but it’s not always convenient or possible due to the holidays and out work schedules. So on behalf of both of us, we want to wish our “mama” and “tata” ( Sharon’s mom and dad ) “Hristos se rodi” ( That’s “Merry Christmas” in Serbian ).
