Trip Around the Sun

Jimmy Buffett sings a song about birthdays titled "Trip Around the Sun".
This latest trip around the sun for me has been an eventful one. Matter of fact it's only been recently that I tried to think about it all at one time.
Since last August:
Youngest left for college
Both sons got engaged
I was signed by a literary agent
Daddy fell and had knee surgery
We joined a new church
Robert and Carrie got married
Lizzy transferred colleges
Mike's dad passed away
Robert and Carrie graduated grad school
Ryan moved to LaGrange
Robert and Carrie moved to Atlanta
Ryan and Casey got married
Ryan graduated college
Mike took on project in Wisconsin
All in all, it's been a wonderful year of living. Now, lets go do another one!

Trip Around the Sun - Lyrics
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
