Another Trip Around the Sun

"Only Time will tell if it was Time well spent" is a line from the Jimmy Buffet song, "Trip around the Sun". This song came to mind this morning because it is my husband's birthday. I love the saying about birthdays - "I celebrate the day you were born." Isn't that an awesome thought? That along with remembering the years you've lived and what the future holds, we're remembering and honoring the day you first breathed, first opened your eyes - the very day you were born.
So, Happy Birthday Mike - I Celebrate The Day YOU Were Born!

And a gift for everyone - Jimmy Buffet and Martina McBride singing, "Trip Around the Sun."


Hear 'em singing Happy Birthday
Better think about the wish I made
This year gone by ain't been a piece of cake
Every day's a revolution
Pull it together and it comes undone
Just one more candle and a trip around the sun

I'm just hanging on while this old world keeps spinning
And it's good to know it's out of my control
If there's one thing that I've learned from all this living
Is that it wouldn't change a thing if I let go

No, you never see it coming
Always wind up wondering where it went
Only time will tell if it was time well spent
It's another revelation
Celebrating what I should have done
With these souvenirs of my trip around the sun


Yes, I'll make a resolution
That I'll never make another one
Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun
Just enjoy this ride ...
Until it's done
