At the end of next month I will turn sixty-five(hard to believe). I have reached the age when celebrating birthdays takes on a new dimension (survival). But birthday's are just another day.
Unless you are the Pope! Yesterday was Pope Benedict XVI's eighty-fifth birthday (wow, twenty years older and probably in better health than me). Obviously the world celebrates with him and wishes him well. His name topped the "Today's Birthday's" list in the local paper. Usually they list the famous person's profession, then the name and then the age. His read Pope Benedict XVI - 85.
Thursday marks the seven year anniversary of his election. May God continue to bless him.
