Friday Jennie once again turned one year older than me -- now she's a quarter of century old! So, for ten more months, I'll have to hear about the fact that I'm just a youngin' and she's soooo much more mature and I can't possibly understand complex ideas and concepts like she can. Yada yada yada. (I just keep telling myself she'll turn 40 before me, and 50 and 60 and....)
Today we had a party with 20... no, 30... no, 50 of our closest friends and family. Wow. And I even missed people. If you're one of those people I didn't call or email, please accept my sincere apology. (You see, I organized this party, and I didn't do the best job; sorry.) It's amazing how many people one person or one family can influence in the world. One really starts to realize that fact when they all (or at least some) show up in one place at one time.
Kinda makes me want to do a better job of influencing.
