Today is my mom’s 90th birthday. Wow. That alone is amazing after the year we’ve had. But in looking back on her life, I see so many amazing things that have happened in our world. Yes, some truly awful things too, but the good definitely outweighs the bad.
We’ve seen horrific wars with weapons that defy logic and humanity. But that, unfortunately, seems to be the way of the world. I don’t know that there’s ever been a time in history that was without strife of some sort.
But we’ve also seen advancements in medicine – some of which came about *because* of those wars.
We’ve made huge strides in transportation and technology. I can’t even keep up with some of the things coming to us these days – there are just too many.
We’ve become more global. No longer are we as insulated as we once were. Now, you can see what the weather is going to be halfway around the world – and talk to the people there instantly.
We’ve reached the moon, and the stars, and strive for more.
And that is what we should always do – strive for better. Note – I said “better” not “more” – two different things. I want better for my children and grandchildren and the generations to come.
Today is a special day for my mom – so for her birthday, I am wishing you better. May you have an amazing day and look for the good things in your life.
